INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana State Police say two interstate highways near the Ohio border are reopening after being closed for multi-vehicle pileups.
Police say westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near Richmond have reopened after being closed for 7½ hours for a crash involving nine semitrailers and four passenger vehicles.
Police also say eastbound lanes of I-74 about 20 miles west of Cincinnati, Ohio, have reopened following two crashes in westbound lanes that collected about 40 vehicles. They say I-74 westbound lanes would reopen after highway crews spread salt and repaired damage to the roadway.
The I-74 and I-70 crashes occurred about 11 a.m. EST amid snow squalls fueled by winds gusting up to 40 mph.
