There have been several incidents around the Tri-State due to slippery and hazardous road conditions due to the winter weather.
Two semi trucks were on fire in Gibson County this morning on U.S. Highway 41. One of the semi trucks stopped in the middle of the intersection on HWY 41 and Warrenton Road just north of I-64. It took crews about an hour to clear the area.
There were no injuries, but the incident backed up traffic on HWY 41.
Just a few miles up the road from that semi truck fire, another semi truck caught on fire. The truck was hauling 8,500 gallons of fuel when the driver says he believes his brakes over-heated, which caused the truck to catch fire.
Crews were able to put the fire out before it spread to the payload. It caused both northbound and southbound lanes to close for about an hour.
A wrecker towed the trailer to a nearby convenience store to deliver the gasoline.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Todd Ringle tweeted pictures of a couple of accidents this morning. One was anothe semi truck fire on southbound Interstate 69 in Gibson County, about a mile south of the Oakland City exit.
Both southbound lanes of I-69 were closed due to that incident.
In Posey County, a semi slid off State Road 62 at the William Keck Bypass.
Ringle also says there were two separate slide offs on I-64 near the 24 mile marker.
