LAGRANGE COUNTY - Traffic on the Indiana Toll Road in LaGrange County is moving slowly following a series of accidents this morning that left both lanes blocked for a time.
Indiana State Police say the collisions happened between the 120 and 123 mile markers. The first was a semi that rolled over. It was followed by secondary crashes involving two semis and a passenger vehicle.
One semi driver was seriously injured and was flown to Memorial Hospital in South Bend. At least two other people suffered less serious injuries.
Traffic was diverted onto State Road 9 at the Howe exit for awhile, but the passing lane on the eastbound side is slowly being opened to allow traffic to flow again.
