Road Closures Hit Indiana; State of Emergency Declared

Road closures are quickly becoming a problem, and Indiana road conditions are forcing a state of emergency according to state police. Hazardous weather conditions caused several crashes and slide-off's in the Northwest area.
State police say the roads are snow-covered and extremely slick. Some main highways remain open but most adjacent and secondary roads are closed.

"The overwhelming majority of these crashes and slide-offs were caused by motorists driving too fast for conditions," said Sgt. Curt Durnil, of Indiana State Police.

"It's not too bad if you just take your time," said motorist Gary Brown. "That's the biggest problem. People don't take their time."

More than 300 schools delayed or canceled classes for Monday.
