EVANSVILLE, Ind.(WEHT)- A series of car crashes on I-69 near the 41 exit in Evansville caused northbound I-69 to be closed for an hour and a half Wednesday night.
Evansville Police say the first crash happened around 9:30 p.m. when a semi and a car crashed. While officers were directing traffic around that crash, a car drove directly at them, forcing the officers to jump out of the way as the vehicle crashed into a police cruiser.
The driver of that vehicle, Phillip Mammoser, was not hurt, but was arrested for driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.
But before that arrest, an apparent rubbernecker hit a vehicle while navigating through the scene.
Only one person was hurt in the initial crash. Their condition is unknown at this time.
