IndianaI-74 section reopens day after tanker crash
FAIRLAND, Ind. — Highway crews worked through the night to replace pavement on Interstate 74 in central Indiana after a tanker carrying diesel fuel crashed and burned.
The fire badly damaged the road surface, causing authorities to close I-74's eastbound lanes about 15 miles southeast of Indianapolis near the Shelby County town of Fairland. Crews repaved the section and it reopened Friday morning.
The trucker was found dead after Thursday afternoon's crash, which state police say happened when the tanker overcorrected after crossing the centerline and flipped onto its side. The truck driver wasn't immediately identified.
