HUNTINGTON COUNTY (www.incnow.tv)--A traffic headache on the interstate Friday morning.

It was just after 7am when a semi caught fire near the General Motors plant at the I-469 exit in the northbound lanes.

Crews were dispatch to put out the blaze, restricting traffic.

As traffic backed up around 8:15am, one semi driver not noticing that traffic had slowed, rear ended a second semi which in turn struck a pickup truck.

One semi ended up in a cornfield, the other spilled some of the detergent it was hauling.

Police shut down the northbound lanes to clean up the mess.

There were only minor injuries.
