The crash caused hazardous material to be spilled leading to the closure of southbound lanes of I-65 near the crossing of State Road 250.

All lanes of Interstate 65 at the 41 mile marker near Uniontown have reopened after a crash involving three semis in the southbound lanes Wednesday morning that caused hazardous chemicals to leak. Any home withing a half-mile of the crash was evacuated.

One of the truck drivers hit the back of a second semi, which in turn hit a third tractor-trailer.

INDOT said the work will begin with the left lane.

After the burned out damage was cleared away, IN DOT crews were able to assess the damage to the roads. All lanes were shut down as of 8:45 a.m.

NYC Pedestrian Deaths Drop 32 Percent Last Year
The decrease in pedestrian deaths helped lower the number of traffic fatalities overall by 7 percent for the same period, or from 231 to 214.


Troopers were at the scene and traffic was being diverted at Grant and Burr streets, state police said. Further repairs to the asphalt will be needed, Maginity said, but they will need to wait until the temperatures warm up.

One person was injured in the crash, which happened around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Eventually, the truck caught fire, posing what police called an "explosion risk" and prompting officials to issue a non-mandatory evacuation of the surrounding areas.

Wheeles said they're still working to determine exactly what kind of chemicals the truck was carrying and where it was headed.
