Slick roads lead to flurry of crashes

March 5, 2012

A light overnight snowfall led to icy roads and dozens of accidents in central Indiana. Indiana State Police estimated about 60 overnight and early-morning accidents, about two to three times more than normal. Black ice was blamed for several crashes. One of the largest occurred about 2 a.m. in Boone County, just south of Lebanon, where multiple vehicles slid off Interstate 65, requiring police to close a section of the road for a short time. There were no serious injuries in any of the slide-offs.
