JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An overturned semi caused traffic to slow Friday morning while covering the roadway with corn.

Jonesboro Dispatch said it happened on Southwest Drive and Alexander.

According to a Jonesboro Police department crash report, Scottie McDuffee was driving the 2017 semi when he went too fast around a curve and turned over. 

The corn spilled and forced lane closures on Southwest Drive. 

No one was hurt, but it took 2 tow trucks to get the semi upright and an additional semi to put the corn in. 

Edgar Sanchez shared a video with Region 8 News on Friday right after the semi overturned.

The crash report states the semi is owned by Delta Farms Grain, LLC out of Lake City.
