“The dump truck came across the median and onto the ramp and stuck another vehicle, causing the truck to turn on its side,” Deputy Chief Mercs said.

Crews had to remove spilled gravel from the highway and the I-675 ramp at Indian Ripple.

Officials say the dump truck hit a pickup truck and both drivers were taken to the hospital.

Deputy Chief Mercs says the dump truck driver is in serious condition and the pickup truck driver has minor injuries.

Deputy Chief Mercs says it’s possible that the dump truck driver blew a tire but the case is still under investigation.

The scene is now clear and the ramp has reopened.
