[ISP] Pendleton District Calls for Service Totals for Yesterday's Storm
Start Date: 1/3/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/3/2014
Entry Description

From 6 a.m. yesterday morning until 6 p.m. last night Pendleton Troopers worked 12 property damage crashes and 45 slide offs. Troopers were not called to any personal injury crashes in the eight county district yesterday.

There was a property damage crash last evening on I-70 that involved lane blockage. That crash involved a jackknifed semi into the median at around 8:45 p.m. at the 115 mile marker west of the Knightstown exit.

The west bound passing lane was blocked for two and a half hours as crews worked to remove the semi from the median. During inclement weather remember to drive according to road conditions:

•Allow extra time to get to your destination.
•Clear all windows of ice and snow and remove snow from hood, roof and head lights and tail lights.
•Beware of bridges, overpasses and intersections where ice tends to form first.
•Don’t use cruise control on slick roads.
•Avoid abrupt stops and starts, slow down gradually and keep wheels turning to avoid losing traction.
•Use headlights even during daylight hours.
•Increase the following distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
•Decrease your speed according to the road conditions.
•Make sure everyone in your vehicle is properly restrained.
•DON’T BE DISTRACTED-Pull over and stop to use electronic devices.
•MOVE OVER and SLOW DOWN for emergency and highway service vehicles.

The most common cause of crashes during snow or icy weather is speed too fast for the existing road conditions. Remember, slick roads don’t cause crashes-it’s your driving behavior on those roads that causes the crash. Please slow down and be patient. Plan your trip according to weather and traffic conditions.

Also for up to date Road and Weather Conditions, please call 1-800-261-7623, or visit INDOT’s web site at PLEASE DO NOT CALL your local City, County or State Police for road conditions. PLEASE leave our phone lines open for emergency calls.
