An intense band of snow that mixed with falling freezing temperatures created slick road conditions across central Indiana overnight Thursday morning into rush hour, causing more than 50 crashes. The snow band affected the region most around 12:30 a.m. and because the roads were untreated for such conditions, the moisture froze over quickly and created black ice and other slick conditions. The worst of the crashes was a 14-car pileup on westbound I-70 just before Holt Road. It had multiple lanes shut down throughout the morning. All lanes are now open, and fortunately no major injuries were reported.
