Sneezing attack blamed for Indiana semi crash

GREENWOOD, Ind. — Police in suburban Indianapolis say the driver of semitrailer hauling Coca-Cola products had a sneezing attack that caused him to lose control of the truck before it flipped onto its side.

The crash happened Friday in Greenwood, closing a street near Interstate 65 for a couple hours.

Greenwood police tell WRTV the driver reported he had just made a delivery and was trying to make a turn when he began sneezing multiple times. The truck went into some grass and the driver apparently overcorrected, causing it to flip onto its side and block much of the roadway.

Police say the driver wasn’t injured.
