Bypass traffic rerouted after early morning accidents

Icy road conditions kept Michiana dispatches busy responding to several accidents Monday morning.

The bypass in Elkhart Co. saw two accidents that caused the shutdown of the bypass’ westbound lanes about a mile before SR 19 at around 7:30 a.m.

Officials say a semi-truck and a red pickup truck collided after one of the vehicles skidded on the icy roads, blocking part of the road and causing traffic to be rerouted to SR 19.

No injuries were reported in either crash.
