Indiana State Police say a semi taking the ramp from Calumet Avenue to I-80 eastbound too fast, this morning caused a multi-semi crash that blocked lanes for about three hours. Troopers say a preliminary investigation showed the first semi rolled onto its drivers side and slid onto the interstate. A second semi pulling an empty covered wagon trailer hit the rail container, but stayed upright and a third rig pulling a box trailer tried to swerve to avoid the other two, causing it to jack-knife, hitting the second trailer and crashing into and through the concrete median barrier wall. The second trailer ripped open and parts of its load, rolls of Styrofoam came out onto the interstate. Troopers say one of the drivers suffered a fractured knee, and the other two were unhurt.
