MORGAN COUNTY, Ind. — One man was killed and another was injured in an overnight crash involving three semis in Morgan County.

The crash happened around midnight on eastbound I-70 near mile marker 52, said Indiana State Police.

According to ISP, 37-year-old Alfred Hill, Jr., of Houston, Texas, was outside of his semi on I-70 placing emergency triangles due to his truck becoming disabled. The truck was partially in the driving lane of I-70 with no lighting.

At the same time, Amer Al Fatlawi, 39, of Lincoln, Neb., was headed east in his semi. At the last second, Al Fatlawi saw Hill’s semi sitting partially in the road and swerved into the left-hand lane to avoid a crash.

However, a semi driven by Christopher Lyles, 39, of Griffin, Ga., was traveling in that lane and was unable to keep from crashing into Al Fatlawi’s semi.

The crash forced both trucks to the south side of I-70, hitting Hill and his disabled semi.

All three semis came to rest in a ditch along the side of the road.

Hill was killed in the crash.

Al Fatlawi was airlifted to Methodist Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Lyles was not hurt.

State Police said drugs and alcohol were not factors in the crash.
