Northbound I-69 in Huntington County closed for several hours following crash, two air-lifted to hospital

HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Interstate 69 in Huntington County is now open after it was closed for more than 3 hours this morning due to a crash.

Indiana State Police say this was at mile marker 281 between the Markle and Warren exits.

An investigation revealed a 2000 Dodge Stratus was heading southbound on I-69 when, for an unknown reason, it traveled into the center median. It then spun around before entering the northbound lanes, striking the driver’s side of a 2011 GMC Acadia.

The Stratus came to a rest in the right, northbound lane, and the the Acadia traveled off the roadway and down into a ditch where it rolled completely over before coming to a final rest.

The driver of the Stratus and a passenger in the Acadia were air-lifted to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne, and are both currently listed in critical condition.

The driver of the Acadia was transported by EMS to PRMC and is in stable condition.

The investigation is still ongoing.
