(UNIONTOWN, IN) - No use crying over spilled milk; or at least that was the mindset for Jackson County emergency crews on Sunday as they cleaned up the scene of a wreck involving a tanker load of milk.

Police say that the wreck snarled traffic on Interstate 65 near Uniontown for nearly six hours.

61-year-old Paul Bird of Battle Creek, Michigan, was driving south when his semi left the road, hit a ditch and struck a line of trees.

Bird was treated for minor injuries at the scene and then taken to Columbus Regional Hospital.
