LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- A crash involving at least three semitrailers and two other vehicles amid the snow storm has caused a long backup on Interstate 65 near Lafayette.
 
   Indiana State Police say Wednesday morning's crash in the southbound lanes caused some injuries, but details weren't immediately available. The crash happened as the area saw heavy snow and winds that reduced visibility for drivers.
 
   The crash left one vehicle pinned between two semis, including one that slid to a stop along the highway's median guardrail.
 
   Much of the state remains under a blizzard warning from the National Weather Service and at least a dozen counties are warning drivers to only travel in emergencies.
