Three rig, four car crash claims life of one 


One person is dead after a chain-reaction crash in Indiana over the weekend. 

The accident happened on May 27th in Hendricks County along eastbound Interstate 70 near Old State Road 267 west of Indianapolis. 

An Indiana State Police spokesperson reports that “traffic was backed up from a minor crash on the side of the interstate just west of the crash scene. As traffic backed up, the driver of a semi-tractor trailer failed to stop in time and hit the back of stopped traffic. Two vehicles rolled over and several other vehicles received heavy damage.”

One person died in the accident and two were taken to a hospital with non life threatening injuries, reported WTHR 13 News.

The series of crashes caused one vehicle to catch fire and closed the eastbound lanes of the highway for nearly six hours. No further information has been released.
