INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A chain-reaction crash involving more than a dozen vehicles has shut down an icy section of Interstate 74 near Indianapolis.

The crashes happened Monday morning as vehicles slid and were unable to stop, including a semitrailer that jackknifed and slid into the median.

No serious injuries were immediately reported.
