Multiple emergency crews responded to Old Springfield Road east of Dog Leg Road around 6:40 a.m. on initial reports of a rollover crash.
Investigators said a semi traveling on Dog Leg Road started to lose a load of soybeans, and continued on to Old Springfield Road. The soybeans created slick conditions on the road, causing multiple crashes and slide-offs on Old Springfield Road.
