Commerical vehicle crash snarls evening traffic on I-70 near Terre Haute
VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (Sept. 11, 2015)– A box trailer full of household items wrecked late Friday afternoon along I-70 just east of Terre Haute causing the interstate to close for about an hour.
Indiana State Police reported that the box trailer was traveling east bound when the driver elected to pass a slower semi but over corrected when the other tractor-trailer weaved too close to the passing semi.
The passing semi then lost control of his semi, veering across all lanes of east bound traffic before crashing into the concrete barriers.
Neither driver was injured and the interstate closure lasted for about 90 minutes with all lanes now reopen.
