CLAY COUNTY, Ind — Indiana State police say one person was taken to a hospital Thursday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 70 in Clay County.

It happened around 5:25 p.m. in the westbound lanes of the highway about three miles east of State Road 59.

ISP said a preliminary investigation indicates a car driven by a 35-year-old Colorado man was going west on I-70 and failed to observe traffic that had slowed because of rainy conditions. The driver attempted to avoid a collision but struck the rear of a semi tractor trailer. The car flipped and came to rest on the roadway.

An investigation is underway.
