BLOOMINGTON— Indiana State Police say crews are working to free dozens of vehicles that are stuck on a central Indiana highway because they couldn’t make it up a hill on the slick road.
Sgt. Curt Durnil says about 40 vehicles were stuck Wednesday morning on Indiana 37 near the Monroe-Morgan county line between Bloomington and Martinsville. He says it could take a couple hours for state highway crews to clear the roadway.
Durnil says the people in those vehicles aren’t in any danger but that southbound traffic was being stopped at Martinsville at least until the tie-up is cleared.
Meanwhile, four state highway department snowplows slid off slick roads near Vincennes. Agency spokeswoman Cher Elliott says drivers who are stuck face a couple hours’ wait for a tow truck.
