Indianapolis is usually a pretty easy commute, at least comparatively speaking to places like Atlanta, Chicago, or Los Angeles. However, when issues pop up like they did today, the morning rush hour can be a major headache.
At around 4 AM, a truck knocked into an electronic sign board, causing an entire shutdown of the Westbound lanes on I-70, near the Emerson exit:

All lanes of I-70 westbound at the 85mm are closed
A dump truck struck an electronic message board
This could be an extended closure, please seek alternate routes pic.twitter.com/Co0hQ3sdRK
As of right now, IMPD is saying they believe it was “operator error”. Oof. Can we get trucks to stop running into signs and bridges?
Were you stuck this morning?
