ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.–Two people were injured in what police are calling a serious crash involving four vehicles on the Indiana Toll Road Tuesday afternoon.
State police say the crash happened in a construction zone on the Toll Road about one mile west of the Bristol exit. A yellow 2006 Peterbilt towing a livestock trailer loaded with cattle “failed to slow down” and crashed into the back of a white 2020 Dodge Ram and a white 2021 Volvo that was in front of the Dodge.
The collision between the Peterbilt and the Volvo caused the Volvo to be pushed into the back of a trailer being towed by a semi in front of the Volvo. It also caused a white 2021 Range Rover to break free from the trailer and land in the road.
The driver of the Peterbilt was taken by ambulance to a hospital with “complaints of pain.”
The driver of the Dodge had to be extricated and then flown to a hospital in South Bend with “serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.”
The cleanup for the crash took several hours.
