Separate incidents stall traffic on I-44 and Missouri Highway 171

Updated: March 4, 2013 05:33 PM CST

A semi-truck full of corn overturned earlier on Monday on a highway near Carl Junction.  The semi went into the ditch along Route 171 to avoid hitting other cars that turned in from of it.

Crews used a giant vacuum to clean up the corn and dump it into another semi trailer.

In a separate incident, a cement truck overturned at mile marker 10 on Interstate 44 in Missouri.  The scene has been cleaned up.  No other details are available at this time.

No word on injuries from other incident at this time.
