Heavy snow snarling travel in much of Indiana


The Associated Press

Bloomington — Indiana State Police say crews are working to free dozens of vehicles on a central Indiana highway from the heavy snowfall.

Sgt. Curt Durnil says about 40 vehicles were stuck Wednesday morning on Ind. 37 near the Monroe-Morgan county line between Bloomington and Martinsville. He says it could take a couple hours for state highway crews to clear the roadway.

Meanwhile, four state highway department snowplows slid off slick roads near Vincennes. Agency spokeswoman Cher Elliott says crews are keeping roads in the Evansville and Vincennes area clear, but that drivers who are stuck face a couple hours wait for a tow truck.
