(March 3, 2015) – Multiple crashes and slide-offs around central Indiana kept emergency crews busy Tuesday morning as freezing rain fell across the state.

On I-465 and I-65 on the northwest side, a salt truck was involved in a crash that backed up traffic there. The left lane of northbound I-65 was closed near I-865 after a crash there, and drivers should expect delays near mile marker 127.

Three semi trucks were involved in a crash on I-65 in Lafayette. Witnesses reported debris on the roads after that crash. A semi also slid off the road near mile marker 172.

Indiana State Police reported several slide-offs along westbound I-70 just west of mile marker 137. Drivers were advised to avoid the area, as the closure was expected to last several hours.
