Indiana State Police release weekend weather statistics

Due to the blizzard-like conditions that blew through Michiana over the holiday weekend, many motorists found themselves driving in difficult situations.

Those weather conditions led to Indiana State troopers to respond to a high amount of vehicle incidents throughout the past several days, particularly between Thursday afternoon and Sunday morning.

State police from the Indiana Lowell Post compiled a list showing the number of motorists served and response rates:

  • Property Damage Crashes- 153
  • Crashes Involving Injuries- 28
  • Slide Offs (non-damage but tow required)- 83
  • Assist Motorists- 157
  • Impaired Drivers- 5
  • Troopers Injured- 1

Troopers also issued a thank you to several local police departments as well as the Indiana Department of Transportation for their support throughout the winter weather event.
