Accident clogs Interstate 865

October 5, 2011

All eastbound lanes on Interstate 865—the east–west connector between I-465 and I-65 northwest of Indianapolis—were closed for more than an hour after an accident Wednesday morning, causing severe traffic backups throughout the area. A car crossed the median into eastbound traffic and hit a van head-on. The man driving the car was seriously hurt. A male driver and two children in the van suffered less serious injuries.
