Muscatine County officials are cleaning up a big mess after a semi truck carrying scrap metal tipped over and dumped its load.

It happened around 9:30 Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at the intersection of 155th St. and Highway 38 near Wilton. Officials say the semi driver was eastbound on 155th and tipped over while turning north onto Highway 38. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.

Officers responded to the scene to provide traffic control. By afternoon, crews were working to get the truck upright. The highway may have to be closed for a few minutes during the process.

A lot of scrap metal was dumped into the east ditch and that will need to be cleaned up, as well.
