[ISP] Putnamville Troopers Respond to Weather Related Calls for Service
Start Date: 1/2/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/2/2014
Entry Description
From 1:00 this morning until 5:00 this evening, Indiana State Police Troopers from the Putnamville Post have responded to various weather related calls for service.

Assist mechanically disabled vehicles 6
Property damage crashes 9
Personal injury crashes 3 All injuries believed to be minor
Vehicle slide offs 39

The problem areas have been Interstate 70 from the Illinois state line eastward to the 58 mile marker, US 40 east of Terre Haute, and US 41 in southern Parke County. On US 41 just north of SR 163 (Lyford) at the “Daily Hill” area, road conditions prevented many passenger cars from continuing up the hill. The northbound lane was closed from 8:00am until just after 9:00am, so Indiana Department of Transportation plows could clear the roadway.

The largest concentration of I-70 calls was from the 11mm in Vigo County to the 42mm in Putnam County. The three personal injury crashes all occurred on I-70 with one in Vigo (1mm), one in Clay County (17mm), and one in Putnam County (34mm). No other information is available concerning the crashes.

There are no major road closures.

The attached picture is from a semi rollover at the 1 mile marker eastbound I-70...The rest park entrance..Minor injuries....

The Putnamville District is comprised of Parke, Vermillion, Vigo, Clay, Putnam, and Sullivan counties.
