LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Interstate 65 northbound near Lafayette closed for hours Saturday after a 13-vehicle crash in heavy snow and multiple smaller wrecks that came after it. It reopened at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley told The Associated Press that nine semitrailers and four other vehicles were involved in the large crash Saturday. Riley says at least one semi caught fire.
He says four people were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening. He didn't know whether they were hurt in the large crash or the smaller ones.
Riley says those who were injured or stranded in vehicles have all been safely taken away from the scene.
Earlier reports described the large crash as involving about 30 vehicles.
I-65 southbound had also been closed in the area, but it was later reopened.
