Two Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) workers and the driver of a tractor-trailer were seriously injured after a Indianapolis Truck Accident this morning. The Indianapolis Star reported that the crash happened at around 2:30 a.m. at the Brookeville Road and I-74 interchanges on I-465.

A spokesman for the Indiana State Police, Sgt. Richard W Meyers, stated that the 40-year-old driver of a 2004 International tractor-trailer driving in a closed lane of traffic and failed to move over for a crew performing construction along the road. The tractor-trailer collided with the rear of a dump truck which then hit a trailer hauled by a pickup truck. The rig then continued southbound until it hit another trailer hauling lighting equipment.

Two INDOT workers, 53- and 58-years-old respectively, who were inside the pickup trucks that were hit were taken to a local hospital after complaining of back pain, while the truck driver was transported to the hospital for treatment for a leg injury.

Troopers are continuing to look into what factors may have played a part in causing the accident.
