EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - State police say two troopers were hurt when a semitrailer ran into the rear of their stopped squad car on Interstate 69 near Evansville.

Sgt. Todd Ringle says the troopers suffered minor injuries from the crash about 9 a.m. Wednesday and were treated and released from an Evansville hospital.

Ringle says the troopers were inside their car with its emergency lights on, diverting traffic from a previous crash when the semi ran into the back of the cruiser, turned onto its side and hit another car. The semi’s load of soybeans was spilled across the southbound lanes of the highway about 10 miles north of Evansville.

Ringle says the drivers of the other vehicles weren’t injured. The semi driver was ticketed for failing to yield to a stationary emergency vehicle.
