CHICAGO (CBS) -- Illinois State Police (ISP)are investigating a rollover crash involving a purple granulated powder that spilled out of a truck that rolled over on I-88.

Traffic is getting by on the left shoulder only but delays are on both sides, but the east side is clear.

According to ISP, a 2023 Black Porsche "made an abrupt improper lane change, striking the driver-side of a 2010 Red Mack truck." 

The truck hit a concrete median and overturned, spilling its load, described as salt.

The driver of the Porsche was taken to a local hospital with what was described as non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the truck was uninjured.
