    A crash involving two cars and a semi Wednesday afternoon seriously injured an infant and left a woman, two teens and toddler also hurt.

    The crash also closed a portion of Interstate 465 for about two hours Wednesday afternoon. Indiana State Police said the crash happened at about 12:45 p.m. near the 45-mile marker, near the intersection with U.S. 40. The two cars were trying to merge onto I-465 from U.S. 40, and the semi was southbound on I-465, coming up behind the merging traffic.

    Indiana State Police say Allyssa Harbert of Indianapolis, slowed the Chrysler Sebring she was driving nearly to a stop in an attempt to let Sabrina Stroud of Indianapolis, merge in a Chevrolet Cavalier. Christopher Mullis of Rushville, driving a semi tractor-trailer, struck the rear of the Cavalier, pushing it into the Sebring.

    Harbert and her passenger were taken to Community East Hospital, complaining of neck and back pain.

    Stroud was taken to Wishard Hospital, where she was treated and released. Two children in car seats in the rear seat of her car were taken to Riley Hospital. One, a 3-year-old boy, was in good condition. The other, a 1-year-old girl, sustained head injuries and was in serious condition.

    The semi driver was not injured.
