Vehicle fire blocks a lane on the Toll Road for two hours


Westbound travel was reduced to one lane for around two hours on the Indiana Toll Road this morning after a vehicle fire.

Dispatchers received a call around 6:45am for a car dragging a boat trailer that rolled over in the westbound lanes of the Toll Road. Fire crews were called to put out the fire, and traffic was reduced to one lane while the right lane was cleaned up.

The driver was originally thought to be entrapped, but dispatchers reported they had gotten out of the vehicle and were checked out. No major injuries are suspected.

The right lane re-opened shortly before 9:00am.
