TRI-STATE (WFIE) – Ice continues to move through the Tri-State Thursday morning with snow expected to follow.
We are out in the 14 First Alert Interceptor, tracking road conditions.
Around 4 a.m., Sgt. Todd Ringle with Indiana State Police reported that roads in Vanderburgh County were stared to deteriorate on I-64, especially on bridges and overpasses.
He reported a tree had fallen in Warrick County and is blocking one westbound lane on I-64. We are now learning that the tree has been removed and all lanes are now open.
At 5 a.m., Sgt. Ringle reported a semi overturned on I-64 in Posey County at the four mile-marker. He says the driver is out of the vehicle and the truck has since been removed.
State troopers are also reporting another crash on I-64 in Posey County at the 10 mile marker.
If you’re traveling on I-64 this morning, especially around Posey Co. PLEASE be careful.
That’s where a good portion of all of the slide-offs and accidents that we’ve seen have been.
