 Wednesday, January 11, 2017


A semi crashed into an overpass on the west side of Indianapolis, causing significant damage that will leave all northbound lanes of Interstate 465 shut down for weeks. Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said a semi heading south on I-465 hit the westbound Rockville Road Bridge around 8:15 a.m. The semi was carrying cars to be compacted at the junk yard. Police said a car crusher on the semitrailer malfunctioned. The machine stretched in length and crashed into the bridge.
