INDIANAPOLIS — Two people were injured — one very seriously — in a crash involving four vehicles early Wednesday on Interstate 70 on the city's northeast side, police say.
Witnesses told police that one of the people hurt may have been running across the interstate when they were struck by a driver, according to Indiana State Police. It is not clear if they were involved in the initial crash.
The crash happened in the eastbound lanes of I-70 near North Sherman Drive and caused lane blockages between Massachusetts and Emerson avenues. Initially, all lanes were blocked but a single lane was later reopened. However, as of 6:46 a.m., all lanes were blocked again.
