1/16/2014 Indianapolis Surprise Snow & Jack-Knife Semi

A rather surprising blast of snow caught many drivers in Indianapolis off-guard as a quick 1-2 inches fell in a very short amount of time early Thursday afternoon.  This storm hit central Indiana as a major blizzard ripped through parts of the northern Plains.

The quick blast of snow slickened highways across Indianapolis leading to a few accidents, including a jack-knifed semi in the center media of southbound I-465 at W. 10th Street.  Crews were able to keep the interstate open as they cleared the scene.  The driver was injured and taken away in ambulance.
