A truck rolled onto its side in the construction zone of Interstate 244 at Sheridan Wednesday afternoon.  

The crash backed up eastbound traffic for several miles.   

The truck was carrying recycled plastic which shifted as the truck rounded a curve, according to the OHP. Troopers said the driver was going too fast.

Troopers said the semi will have to be unloaded before the emergency crew is can upright the truck and tow it away. The OHP said the driver was not seriously injured.

Wednesday's crash is about a mile from an August crash involving two semis.  

On August 31, two westbound semis collided in the same construction zone, that time near Yale.  That crash stopped traffic for over an hour until those trucks could be removed.

Neither driver in the August wreck was injured.
