MADISON COUNTY -

An Anderson man was injured in a Madison County crash on I-69 that closed the northbound lanes for several hours Tuesday.

It happened just before 10:00 am about half a mile south of the State Road 38 exit. Four vehicles were involved in the crash.

Police say Bruce Haidle, 57, of Anderson was driving a 1998 International semi-tractor pulling two box trailers in the left lane of northbound I-69 when he failed to slow down for traffic. That area is under construction and traffic was being diverted to the left lane. 

Haidle struck the back of a passenger car, forcing it into the median. Haidle's truck then struck the rear of a semi-tanker truck which jack-knifed and struck the rear of another passenger car. The jack-knifed semi ruptured a saddle tank and spilled diesel fuel on the interstate.

Haidle was transported to St. John's Hospital with pain, cuts and bruises. The occupants of the other vehicles were not injured.

Northbound I-69 was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and the wreckage cleared.

Police ticketed Haidle for driving too fast to avoid a collision.

Assisting Agencies: Indiana Department of Transportation, Madison County Emergency Management Agency, Madison County Sheriff's Department, and Pendleton EMS.
