Toll Road Crashes Could Start Costing Money

Some local fire departments are asking the private operator of the Indiana toll road for some cash, to help pay the cost of responding to crashes on the toll way.

Fire officials say, crews often stay on a crash scene for several hours fighting fires, removing the injured or killed and helping with cleanup.

They say the costs for the work can reach into the thousands of dollars.

A spokesman for toll road operator, ITR Concession, says the departments should be seeking money from those responsible for the crashes, not the toll road operator.
