Indianapolis—Road conditions are dicey today after a winter blast of ice and snow fell overnight.
State Police and local police departments have been very busy responding to crashes as drivers lost control in slick conditions.
The Indiana Department of Transportation sent out 100 trucks to plow and apply salt to roadways. But they had a tough time keeping the roads cleared as temperatures in the teens caused slush to refreeze.
Side roads are very slick. The interstates are still not completely cleared.
Ripley County issued a Level 2 weather emergency, advising residents to stay off the roads if they don't need to travel. The Sheriff's Office told FOX 59 News that they were dealing with a number of slide-offs but no major crashes.
Around 7 a.m., a crash closed a ramp from I-69 to I-465. Shortly after that, a semi-truck jack-knifed on the I-65 overpass at Martin Luther King Jr. Street.
State Police say to lower your speed and allow for more distance between vehicles when you are traveling in these conditions.
