Crashes photo

Photo from an INDOT Northwest snowplow shows an ice-covered roadway in Northwest Indiana on Saturday evening. Indiana State Police responded to more than 400 calls and responded to more than 75 incidents due to the freezing rain coating roadways.

LOWELL — The freezing rain that left much of Northwest Indiana coated in ice on Saturday created a nightmare for drivers and a busy day for state police and highway workers.

From late Saturday afternoon through the night, a mix of light sleet and freezing rain overspread northern Indiana.
