INDOT: Traffic conditions deteriorating

Freezing rain causing ice build-up on roads

INDIANAPOLIS - Reports of freezing rain lowering visibility and causing hazardous driving conditions rolled in from across Indiana early Monday.

Indiana State Police confirmed reports from RTV6 viewers of multiple car accidents along I-74, and INDOT was reporting crashes along I-465 southbound and on I-80/94 in northwestern Indiana Sunday night.

Indy Snow Force was warning drivers about freezing conditions, and said it had 90 drivers mobilized to keep roads safe.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, wintry conditions led to a fatal 50-car pileup that stranded hundreds of motorists for hours near Morgantown, Penn.

Bobbi Lupkin, 57, of Mechanicsburg, Penn., told ABC News she was on her way home around noon when traffic suddenly slowed to a stop. More than four hours later, she was still sitting in her car on the highway.

"The truth of the matter is, nobody is doing a thing for us," she said.

Some stranded motorists reportedly decided to take advantage of the situation by selling slices of pizza and delivering water bottles to others along the highway.
