Double fatal crash closes eastbound I-70 at SR 267 in Hendricks County

PLAINFIELD, Ind. – Two people were killed in a crash on eastbound I-70 in Hendricks County on Tuesday.

As a result of the crash, all eastbound lanes of I-70 were closed at State Road 267, but they have since reopened.

The Plainfield Fire Department described the area between SR 267 and SR 39 as “a mess.”

The names of the deceased have not been released at this time. The crash remains under investigation.
