In White County, a 36 year old Griffith man was among the injured as the result of a three-vehicle crash this afternoon on southbound I-65 near the State Road 18 exit. Indiana State Police Lafayette Post reports that at 1:38pm vehicles had slowed for a car fire when a third vehicle failed to see traffic slow and ran into the rear of the slowed vehicles, sending three people to the hospital.
As a result, southbound I-65 in that area was closed for one-hour for removal of the injured and cleanup of the scene. The Griffith man and another driver injured were hospitalized with non- life-threatening injuries, while a third injured is listed in serious condition.
An investigation continues.
