MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) — I-65 in Boone County Friday morning had so many crashes, some officials were suggesting people should just avoid traveling in the northbound lanes altogether.

Around 7 a.m., a natural gas truck crashed around the 139-mile marker. Just before 5 a.m. Friday, three different semis jack-knifed in a nearby area.

All of the crashes have happened in the northbound lanes. There was one crash at the 143-mile marker, but no lane restrictions were in place. That semi was in the median. The other two semis jack-knifed at the 146-mile marker and the 149-mile marker. No one was seriously injured in the incidents.

The crashes happened as a result of slick spots along I-65.

Police in Delaware County were also busy overnight after two semis jack-knifed on Interstate 69 near the 245-mile marker, police dispatchers said.

As of about 4 a.m., one of the semis had been towed. The crashes happened in the northbound lanes, closing them to traffic during crash cleanup. As of 4 a.m., one lane was open and one was closed while crews worked to get the second semi towed.

Dispatchers said no one was injured. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
