Accident Closes U.S. 6 Near Walkerton

(Marshall County, IN) - U.S. 6 in Marshall County was closed for about three hours Monday morning due to a multi-vehicle crash.


The accident happened around 7:18 a.m. Central Time near Sycamore Road southeast of Walkerton. According to the Indiana State Police, a gray Nissan Rogue heading north on Sycamore ran a stop sign at U.S. 6 and collided with the driver’s side of a passing westbound semi. The 2023 Freightliner rolled onto its side, blocking all lanes of traffic.


The Nissan’s driver, a 17-year-old juvenile, was extricated and taken to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.


Another car received minor damage in the incident, but that car’s driver was not injured. Neither was the semi driver.


U.S. 6 reopened at about 10:18 after the vehicles were removed from the scene.
