The Vigo County Sheriff’s Department was kept busy yesterday (Thursday) morning with extremely hazardous icy road conditions.
Yesterday’s snow fall created a layer of black ice throughout the county.
In a two hour period between 9am- 11am this morning, the Vigo County Sheriff’s Office received calls for twenty plus crashes and slide-offs.
Three of those crashes have resulted in injuries.
Icy roads lead to one crash involving a Vigo County school bus.
The bus was rear ended as is stopped for the railroad tracks at US41/Harlan.
No one was injured in that crash.
Interstate 70 westbound was closed in Putnam and Clay County due to numerous accidents.
All westbound traffic had to be diverted onto US40.
