Lake County, IN – Motorists faced significant delays early this morning as a semi-truck jackknifed on Interstate 65, prompting a complete closure of the northbound lanes. 

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation Northwest, the incident occurred near mile marker 250, just north of the US 231 and 109th exits. The department issued a traffic alert around 6:30 AM, advising drivers to seek alternate routes. 

The severe winter weather, characterized by heavy snowfall and reduced visibility, has been a contributing factor to the incident and is affecting travel conditions across the region. 

Commuters are encouraged to leave early and drive cautiously as road crews work to clear the scene.
