TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - All lanes of Interstate 70 are back open after a Sunday evening crash that claimed a life.
It happened just before 7:00 Sunday night near the 12 mile marker, just west of State Road 46.
Police say two semis were stalled on the highway and a wrecker was working to get them moved.
As traffic was slowing down and merging for those stalled semis, another semi crashed into the back of a pickup truck, shoving it into the back of another pickup.
The impact caused both pickups to crash into one of the semi trailers on the shoulder of the road.
A female driver of one of the pickups died at the scene. Her name has not been released.
Her passenger was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with life threatening injuries.
The driver of the red S10 was Charles Loyd, age unknown, of Anderson, IN. The passenger was his wife, Connie Loyd, age 48, also of Anderson, IN.
The pair was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of life threatening head, facial and internal injuries.
