By 3:00 p.m. the incident caused a ten mile backup on westbound 80/94 from Chase Street. Shortly after, State police reported one right lane reopened. A traffic tipster also reported a disabled vehicle WB Borman in the inside right lane at the 1.7 mile marker that added to the delay. Motorists were taking the Indiana Toll orad as an alternate.
