USPS semi-truck hits icy patch, crashes on I-65 near Raymond St.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A U.S. Post Office semi-trailer truck crashed early Friday in what investigators say was a weather-related incident.
It happened on northbound I-65 near the Raymond St. exit. The USPS truck lost control and wound up on a safety barrier, hanging precariously over the embankment. Indiana State Police investigators believe the driver was going too fast for the icy road conditions.
Two people were in the truck, and one of those people was transported to a local hospital. That person’s condition is unknown.
Emergency crews had some concern about pulling the truck out of the embankment without causing it to tip over, and they called a second tow truck to assist.
Icy roads were reported around Indy, and authorities are warning motorists to slow down.
