INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - No one was seriously injured when a semitrailer smashed into an Indiana State Police car Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 70.
It happened at 2:30 p.m. near Emerson Avenue and closed the eastbound lanes of the interstate for hours.
Investigators say the ISP car, driven by Sgt. Terry Treone, 45, of McCordsville, was going east on I-70 in the left lane. A semi moved into the right lane but veered back into the left lane hitting the police car.
Both vehicles spun and the semi overturned, spilling 4X8 sheets of steel. The semi's cab came to rest on top of the police car.
Treone and his passenger, Senior Trooper Bill Dalton of Greenfield, were taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital. The semi driver was also taken to Methodist with chest pain.
Police say the driver's medical condition may have contributed to the crash.
A winter weather advisory was issued for Wayne, Union, Switzerland, Ripley, Ohio, Franklin, Fayette and Dearborn counties on Saturday night.
IMPD officials say a 3-year-old boy has died after he was shot in the head Saturday evening.
