Ind. State Police: Dangerous travel on interstates

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana State Police are warning motorists of hazardous travel conditions in northwestern Indiana.

Police say a 15-mile stretch of Interstate 65 northwest of Lafayette has been the scene of numerous slide-offs, spin-outs, jackknifed semitrailers and other crashes.

Police say I-80/94 in Lake County also is particularly treacherous.

The National Weather Service forecast 2 to 4 inches of fresh snowfall Sunday in parts of northern Indiana, while blowing and drifting were expected to continue across central Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security said Sunday that seven central and northern Indiana counties were limiting travel to emergency management workers. Those counties are Steuben, Fulton, Wabash, Huntington, Tipton, Jay and Randolph. More than 40 other counties mostly in northern and eastern Indiana are recommending only essential travel.
