BROWNSBURG, Ind. – A semi crashed near a hotel in Brownsburg Wednesday afternoon.
According to Brownsburg Fire Territory Battalion Chief Ryan Miller, the truck was traveling on I-74 near State Road 267 when it went off the road and crashed feet away the Hampton Inn & Suites.
Investigators say a pickup truck, SUV and the semi truck were all involved in a crash. The SUV rolled over and the pickup truck, which is separated from the rest of the crash, had rear-end damage.
The fuel tank on the semi was ruptured, leaking fuel into rocky drainage outside the hotel. A hazmat crew cleaned up the spill, which may have been a couple hundred gallons.
Miller said there’s no threat to the surrounding area.
Officials said one person was released at the scene and the semi truck driver is being evaluated. The person in the SUV was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.
The crash closed the westbound ramp at S.R. 267, and westbound I-74 in the area was down to one lane for a few hours.
