Four Injured On I-70 Crash Near Plainfield

Around 1:30 p.m. today troopers from the Indianapolis State Police Post and area emergency personnel responded to a two vehicle crash on I-70 near the SR 267 exit.

Troopers arrived to find a Honda Accord and Saturn passenger car scattered across the interstate.

According to witness accounts the west bound Honda rear-ended the Saturn passenger car that was stopped in the left lane of I-70.  Purportedly, the driver of the Saturn had stopped to help an acquaintance that was driving a Kia Soul that was disabled off the south side of the interstate next to the guardrail.

Two occupants from the Honda were taken to the hospital including one individual who was airlifted.  A passenger from the Saturn along with an individual who was outside of the disabled Kia Soul were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.  The crash restricted west bound I-70 traffic for approximately two and half hours.
