Fatal crash shuts down eastbound lanes of Interstate 74

SHELBYVILLE, IN - A fatal accident was disrupting traffic in a portion of Shelby County on Monday afternoon.

An advisory from WIBC Traffic at 4:14 p.m. said all lanes of eastbound Interstate 74 were closed from Fairland Road to near State Road 9 west of Shelbyville.  There was no immediate word on who had died in the crash.

Traffic was diverted at Fairland Road, and drivers were used to taking southbound I-65 to State Road 44 and then taking eastbound SR-44 to Shelbyville as an alternate route.
