THAT IS NOT CORRECT BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION.:mad:


Update: I 69 n is CLOSED at the 5mm. ALL TRAFFIC is being forced off at the 5mm. Also 96th st to get ONTO i69 n is also closed due to wrong way drivers trying to use the ramp to get off the interstate. SOUTHBOUND lanes of I 69 are STILL OPEN, but are SLOW going.

THERE IS NO 13 CAR ACCIDENT. It is a SINGLE vech. accident with a single fatality.

The accident was a Fatal. It was a person who stepped out in front of a semi according to Fishers Police who are investigating the accident along with Indiana State Police. Just to make location clear to the group this was on I-69 at the 5 Milemarker which is SR37 and 116Th Street.Exit from Northbound I-69 in Hamilton County.

As of 4pm, the INDOT traffic camera at I-69 MM5.0 shows NB I-69 traffic to be jammed with mostly semi-trucks, but NB SR 37 can still exit. Based on the other cameras on I-69, NB traffic is backed up to at least 96th St.

The camera at MM 9.1 still shows police blocking the NB lanes as of 16:07.

At 16:11, the MM 9.1 camera still shows police blocking the NB lanes while a tilt-bed wrecker loads a car. The MM 5.0 camera shows traffic moving.

At 16:14, the MM 9.1 camera is clear.

all Ham Co units are in service from the run, there are no units still out on the interstate at this time. Traffic should resume to normal traffic patterns within a few hours.

Why is it so hard to accept what some one else says?

because not all of the information posted on the breaking news section is correct.

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.

The rest of the information that you posted is correct, other than the location.
