Accident Shuts Down I64 near Marengo


Interstate 64 West was closed several miles past Corydon until at least 4 p.m. last night following a major accident Wednesday morning, according to the Crawford County Emergency Management Agency.

According to Larry Allen, the Crawford County EMA Director, a tractor trailer crashed and caught fire around the 92 mile marker of I-64 in the westbound lanes. That exit of the interstate is for Hwy 66, approximately 15 miles past Corydon and leading to Marengo, Indiana to the north.

Allen said no one was killed but did not confirm if anyone was hurt. It appears no other vehicles were involved in the accident. Indiana State Police, the Indiana Department of Transportation and EMS are all at the scene.

Traffic will be detoured ahead of the accident site. Allen said it is not clear what caused the accident.
