VALPARAISO — Multiple people were injured, with some being airlifted, from the scene of a wreck in Valparaiso Saturday. 

Police responded at 4:50 p.m. to the wreck in the intersection of Lincolnway and Campbell Street, said Valparaiso Police Department Sgt. E.J. Hall. 

Multiple vehicles were involved in the crash and the area of the intersection has been temporarily closed. 

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he speaks about joining the force, DUI enforcement grants, and police Jiu-jitsu training.

Hall said multiple people suffered injuries and victims were taken from the wreck to medical flight locations. 

Valparaiso police asked drivers to avoid the area, which has many emergency vehicles still at the scene. Individuals were advised to find an alternate route to get to the downtown area to the east of the closed roadway. 

The investigation is ongoing and police said that no further information was available on the multi-vehicle crash or conditions of those injured.
