Morning commuters are crawling across the I-80/I-94 in northwest Indiana after three semi-trucks crashed Friday in Hammond, closing all lanes for about three hours.

About 4:30 a.m., two of the semis jackknifed and collided on the I-80/I-94 eastbound lanes near the Indianapolis Boulevard exit, according to Indiana State Police. A third semi slid on the icy roads and crashed into them — blocking the remaining gap on the road.

All eastbound lanes were shut down for hours following the crash, police said. At least two lanes were reopened about 7:45 a.m.

No one was injured in the crash, police said.

The closures come on top of all South Shore trains to and from northwest Indiana being canceled Friday, after a recent cold snap brought subzero windchill values to the area.
