INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A winter storm dropping up to 3 inches of snow has
slickened highways across Indiana, leaving one motorist dead and many
others injured across the state.
Greenfield Police say Interstate 70 east of Indianapolis was closed in
both directions after a fatal collision at midday Thursday.
Indiana State Police say a semitrailer slammed into five stopped vehicles
on I-70 near Brazil, critically injuring one driver still in a vehicle and
seriously injuring another standing outside. And in nearby Vigo County, a
sheriff's deputy says six teenagers were injured when one vehicle slid
through an intersection and collided with another. He says another
accident involving a school bus did not involve injuries.
Police report collisions also closed portions of I-65 in central and
southern Indiana and I-69 south of Fort Wayne.
