What Happened

State Police are currently investigating a multi-vehicle crash that injured several people, including at least one child, at I-65 in Jasper County, IN on March 13th, 2023. According to police, it began around 1:30 a.m. Investigators say a tractor-trailer was involved in a rollover crash that occurred under unclear circumstances. This caused a traffic backup that continued into the 5 a.m. hour. Around 5:45 a.m., while traffic was stopped, a box truck allegedly failed to control its speed and collided with the rear of a Subaru ahead. That caused the Subaru to hit a Toyota Tundra and that vehicle to hit a tractor-trailer. The Subaru driver needed emergency extrication from the vehicle, according to authorities, before they were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. A 4-year-old in the Toyota and his parents were also hospitalized. The box truck operated was said to be uninjured. Also believed to be uninjured was the tractor-trailer driver. Information related to any possible charges was not available.
