LT8607 maximum switch current in overload condition


I want to use the LT8606 buck converter.
For selection of the right inductor I need to know the maximum switch current in an overload condition,
as this must be met by saturation current of the inductor. Because some do saturtate hard.
Neither in the specifications nor in the block diagram I found something.
An overload would damage the converter so fast that temperature shutdown would be too slow to protect.
With a LTSPICE simulation it seems to be that max. inductor current is 1.4A.
Please provide me the maximum top-switch current in worst case.
