semi fire
In Lake County, near the Gary/Hobart/Lake Station area, Indiana State Police at the Lowell Post say an early morning crash involving three semis this New Year’s Eve morning has closed all lanes of I-65 northbound just before Ridge Road when one of the semis caught fire.  All lanes northbound at the above location remain closed due to a semi loaded with clothing that has caught fire. All traffic is being diverted off at US 30 and 61st Avenue.   I-65 north bound is expected to be closed for at least another hour when authorities hope to open the left and center lane. The right lane is expected to be closed for at least two more hours.   [Photo/Indiana State Police-Lowell]
Indiana State Police are advising motorists to seek alternate routes and to use caution if traveling in this area.
