LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana State Police said the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 were closed due to a crash Wednesday afternoon east of Lafayette, close to where a crash Wednesday morning closed the southbound lanes for hours.
The afternoon crash happened near the 174-mile marker, close to the Ind. 25 exit, and involved at least two semis and six or seven passenger vehicles, ISP said. By just before 3 p.m., one lane was reopened.
It came less than an hour after emergency crews were able to reopen southbound lanes near the 179-mile marker after a crash blocked the interstate for hours north of Lafayette. It was unclear how long the northbound lanes would remain closed, ISP said.
The earlier also involved six to eight vehicles, including several semis, and closed the roadway. INDOT said crash cleanup could continue to clog traffic there. As of about 12:45 p.m., ISP troopers were checking the area to help anyone stuck in the snow or out of gas.
No information on injuries was available as of about noon Wednesday.
