INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A crash Monday morning in the Interstate 65 construction zone between the Dr. MLK Jr. exit and the White River blocked traffic leaving downtown Indianapolis.

Both lanes of outbound traffic were blocked and the backup stretched down to 21st Street by 6 a.m.

UPDATE: Lanes reopened once the accident was cleared around 7:30 a.m.

Three vehicles were involved and two people left the scene in ambulances. A State Police spokesman reported their injuries were minor.

Emergency responders originally reported a person struck outside a vehicle, but that information was updated to clarify the injuries occurred inside the vehicle.
