Downed power lines shut down I-80/94 in NW Indiana

SB I-65 closed in Jackson County for 3-semi crash; closure could last until 2 pm

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles with Indiana State Police said crews responding to the cleanup faced an "explosion risk".

The crash happened at mile marker 43 when two trucks that were stopped for a previous crash were rear-ended by a third truck. ISP says that the detour is sending traffic to US 31 south to State Road 250 and back on I-65 at mile marker 41.

Homes within a half mile of the area are being evacuated as a precaution.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles says the collision caused one of the trailers to leak hazardous chemicals, and eventually at least one of the rigs caught fire, sending black smoke billowing into the air.

- I-80/94 was fully closed Wednesday morning near Gary, Indiana, because of downed power lines.

Police said NIPSCO crews have been called to the scene. Southbound will remain closed for an indefinite amount of time.

Kyrie Irving Almost Sent To Phoenix? Cavaliers, Pacers, Suns Discussed Deal
I'm not going to point fingers, even though I know fingers will get pointed anyway, but the way it happened was disappointing. As the world turns (or flips, if you're Kyrie), the revisionism of the breakup between Irving and James is still unfolding.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Only one passenger in one of the semi trucks suffered minor injuries in the wreck.

Police said that it will take hours to clean up the situation. However, just before 11 a.m., ISP said both southbound lanes were closed again due to "complications from the cleanup".

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is cleaning up the chemicals, WLFI-TV reported.

Both lanes are expected to be reopened by the afternoon.
