Hamilton County, northern Indianapolis see several crashes and slide-offs

HAMILTON COUNTY and INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - North-side traffic was severely backed up Tuesday morning after several cars and semis crashed on multiple area roadways. Keystone Avenue, in particular, has seen many slide-offs during the morning commute.

Officials said a semi jackknifed sometime around 6:30 a.m. on U.S. 31 near 266th Street. Photos and Skycam 6 video show northbound traffic significantly affected. As of 8 a.m., officials said the semi had been removed and traffic was flowing again.

At roughly 7 a.m., another semi crash was reported - this time on northbound Keystone Avenue near 116th Street between a car and a semi. That crash scene was reportedly cleaned up by 8, but traffic was still backed up, police said.

UPDATE at 8:40 a.m.: Another crash was reported, this one at 72nd Street and Keystone Avenue. Traffic was reportedly restricted to one lane in both directions on Keystone at this intersection. Officials said a car is on its side in the median.
