WARREN COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Authorities in Warren County say dense fog played a major role in a fiery crash Wednesday morning.

U.S. 41 at the State Road 26 intersection was down to one lane in both directions after two semi trailers collided.

Authorities say a fire broke out after the collision and it took crews more than an hour to put it out. Weather conditions are said to have played a major factor in this crash.

Warren County deputies say one semi attempted to turn left onto State Road 26 West and was still in the median area of U.S. 41, when a second semi headed southbound on U.S. 41 collided with the first semi that was still in the median.

Authorities said dense fog in the area played a major role in the crash, saying the second semi could not see the semi attempting to turn.

Both semi drivers made in out of their trucks safely. No injuries were reported.
