ROSELAWN, Ind. (AP) - State police say traffic is moving northbound on Interstate 65 in rural northwestern Indiana again several hours following a rollover accident involving a tanker carrying nitric acid and a fatal crash.

Sgt. Tony Slocum says one northbound lane and the shoulder reopened about 11:30 a.m. Central time, about 90 minutes after southbound lanes reopened near Roselawn, about 30 miles south of Gary. The interstate was closed after the tanker jackknifed and came to rest on the drivers’ side, spilling nitric acid.

Police are urging drivers to use caution because cleanup crews are still on the scene.

Police say a father and two children were killed when their car crashed into a semitrailer stopped in a traffic backup caused by the rollover accident.
