FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  Both lanes of southbound I-69 at mile marker 292 in Huntington County are back open after being closed due to a jackknifed semi and an RV travel trailer on its side.

Indiana State Police troopers are working several more accidents on I-69 as the result of the slick conditions caused by the snow that started falling Thursday morning.

Indiana State Police reported that a jackknifed semi was slowing traffic in the southbound lanes of I-69 at the 311 mile marker just after 11:30 a.m. All lanes were back open around noon.

A motorist used Report!t to send NewsChannel 15 a photo of a jackknifed semi on US 30 at 9:45 a.m. near Kroemer Road in Allen County.
