I 69 northbound is CLOSED at exit 5. All traffic is being diverted off onto 116th st or state road 37 N. Unknown how long road will be closed. Road closed due to accident. Alt. Routes are strongly encouraged.
THAT IS NOT CORRECT BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION.Fox 59 is reporting is as a 13 car accident with 1 confirmed fatality. They're also reporting that north AND southbound lanes are closed.
That news release is not correct either, the incident happened about 100-300 ft SOUTH OF 9.1mm in the northbound lanes. Communications center asked ISP to CLOSE the interstate at the exit 5 to prevent a further back up on the interstate.Indiana State Police NewsRelease that I have just received said that this happened at the 5 Milemarker with a person who stepped out in front of a semi.This was a suicide.*Quoted direct from the ISP News Release that I just received by e-mail.
