Traffic grinded to a halt on the westbound Indiana Toll Road Tuesday morning after two semis collided.

The crash happened just east of the Elkhart/St. Joseph County line at about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Indiana State Police investigators say a semi being driven by a 62-year-old Fort Lauderdale man had pulled over to the right shoulder to check his tires when it was hit by another semi being driven by a 54-year-old Massachusetts man.

The collision shredded the trailer of the first semi and destroyed most of the cab of the second semi.

Despite the heavy damage, both drivers suffered minor injuries.

The right lane of the westbound Toll Road remained closed much of the day Tuesday as cleanup continued.
