The crash, which involved both a semi-truck and a dump truck, happened after an improper lane change, according to Moraine Sgt. Andy Parish.

“(An) initial investigation point towards an improper lane change by a commercial vehicle caused the chain reaction,” Parish said.

That commercial vehicle and possibly another semi failed to stop after the crash.
