INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A chain reaction crash involving more than a dozen vehicles blocked an icy section of Interstate 74 near Indianapolis for a couple of hours.

The crashes happened Monday morning as vehicles slid and were unable to stop, including a semitrailer that jackknifed and skated into the median.

No serious injuries were reported.

Eastbound traffic backed up for several miles as crews worked to clear the interstate of ice and wrecked vehicles about five miles southeast of I-465.
