A crash involving a semi tractor pulling a box trailer has closed the westbound lanes of I-74 in Montgomery County. Minor injuries were reported.

The crash occurred at the 45 mile marker, and the interstate is closed at the 52 mile marker. Traffic is being diverted onto State Road 75 to U.S. 136, to U.S. 231 and back on the interstate.   

The westbound lanes are expected to remain closed for at least four hours while freight from the crashed semi-trailer is transferred to another trailer. Concrete barriers at the 45 mile marker have to be repositioned due to being knocked out of place by the crash impact. The crash was in a work zone. 
Expect slowed or stopped traffic in the area. Seek alternate routes if possible.
