TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Update: Sgt. Matt Ames has confirmed that both westbound lanes on I-70 near the 16-mile mark are now reopened.

According to Sgt. Matt Ames’ update post, INDOT will still be in the area and encourages drivers to be careful while traveling in the area.

Original: A crash on I-70 involving four semis caused the left westbound lane to be temporarily closed Thursday morning.

According to a post from Sgt. Matt Ames, the crash happened near the 16-mile marker west of the Brazil exit. 

Ames said INDOT was doing maintenance on I-70 and one semi-driver did not respond to the construction in time, resulting in a domino effect with three other semis.

Three of the four semis were disabled by the wreck, and Ames expects the lane to be closed for about 45 minutes.

Troopers have responded to the scene and emergency crews are currently working in the area. Ames encourages motorists to use caution while driving in the area.

“ISP would also like to remind everyone that it’s construction season and to watch out for information boards, slow down, buckle up, and don’t drive,” Ames said.
