The westbound side of the Indiana Toll Road between Lake Station and Portage is closed at this hour due to an accident and tanker truck fire. Indiana State Police at the Toll Road say the tanker truck on fire was carrying salt. Earlier we had word that two semi trucks may have been involved in this accident, which occurred on the westbound side of the Indiana Toll Road near Ripley Street. Police say westbound traffic was being diverted at Willowcreek in Portage. The fire reportedly started in the cab and did not reach the tanker portion, according to the latest information available from police.
