[ISP] Putnamville Troopers Busy the Past 24 hours
Start Date: 2/5/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/5/2014
Entry Description

Putnamville---Troopers from the Putnamville Post have been busy responding to various calls for service over the past 24 hours or so. The Putnamville District is comprised of Parke, Vermillion, Vigo, Putnam, Clay, and Sullivan counties.

Since 3:00p.m. yesterday and until 3:00p.m. today, troopers have responded to 15 property damage crashes, 1 personal injury crash, 15 slide-offs, and 27 disabled motorists. No serious or life threatening injuries were reported.

The Putnamville District utilized all available manpower and cancelled regular days off to ensure the safety of the motoring public. Troopers were divided into 12-hour day and 12-hour night shifts through tonight.

The “trouble spots” were US 41 in the Daily Hill area of Parke County and all along Interstate 70 from the Illinois state line to the 53 mile marker in Morgan County. This would include Vigo, Clay, and Putnam counties as well. At various times today, traffic was slowed or briefly stopped along Interstate 70 for crash cleanup efforts.

The most frequent cause for the crashes and slide-offs were motorists driving too fast for conditions. Drivers are encouraged to slow down, follow other vehicles at a safe distance, avoid driver distractions, and use extreme caution while driving.

Currently I-70 is mostly wet with no problems or delays. Other state roadways within the district range from snow covered to scattered slick spots. Secondary roads remain snow covered slick and hazardous.

An Indiana State Police web page dedicated to the current winter storm is available at http://www.in.gov/isp/3099.htm. Information will be updated continually throughout the duration of the storm.
