Semi crashes close section of I-65

LEBANON, Ind. – Indiana State Police say both northbound lanes of Interstate 65 have been closed northwest of Indianapolis after three semi-trailers jackknifed along the snow-covered highway.

Cpl. Robert Hatfield said the I-65 northbound lanes were closed about 10:40 a.m. Saturday just north of the U.S. 52 exit in Boone County because the crippled semis have blocked the highway.

He said the semis jackknifed because their drivers were driving too fast along the snow-covered highway.

Hatfield said drivers traveling north along I-65 can circumvent the closed lanes by exiting the highway at the U.S. 52 exit and then travel north along U.S. 52 into Clinton County.

He said motorists should continue north until they reach State Road 28, where they can turn east onto that state road and eventually merge back onto I-65.
