MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – A 17-year-old driver is in non-life-threatening condition Monday after his car crashed into a semitrailer on US 6.
Indiana State Police are investigating the crash that involved three vehicles and shut down US 6 for several hours, according to a release from ISP.
Just after 8:15 a.m., state troopers responded to a report of a crash on the highway near Sycamore Road. At the scene, troopers found a semi on its side, blocking all the lanes of US 6.
