LAPORTE | Both LaPorte ramps on the Indiana Toll Road were closed Wednesday morning after a semi tractor-trailer rolled over there.

The accident occurred around 6:30 a.m., toll road officials said.

The ramps remained closed at 8 a.m. as crews worked to remove the driver.

The eastbound ramp was expected to open before 8:30 a.m. The westbound exit ramp closure is expected to last several hours, until emergency responders can upright the semi, officials said.

Toll road officials were asking westbound motorists to use the Michigan City exit.
