The 43,000 pounds of cheese from a semi trailer that got dumped on the Borman Expressway Monday night was still being cleaned up early Tuesday.

The truck hauling the product hit a barrier and rolled over Monday night, Indiana State Police said.
The truck was eastbound in the right lane of Interstate Highway 80 about 11:20 p.m. Monday when the driver swerved to make the I-65 exit ramp, said Cpl. Dwayne Dillahunty of the Indiana State Police. He lost control of the truck, which hit a barrier wall.
 
The driver, Michael Eckert, 48, of Watertown, Wisc., had minor injuries but refused treatment, Dillahunty said.
