Traffic proceeds around an overturned camper as Cape Girardeau policeman Kevin Eudy inspects the scene Wednesday morning on Interstate 55 near the 96 mile marker in Cape Girardeau. The driver of the pickup, a Louisiana man, passed a semi truck and lost control while switching back into the driving lane from the passing lane, causing his trailer to jackknife and hit the median cable, according to Cape Girardeau Police Department spokesman Jason Selzer. No injuries were reported. Traffic was obstructed for about two hours
