The Tipton Police Department says the crash Friday morning happened at an intersection of U.S. highway 31 in Tipton County, about 35 miles (57 kilometers) north of Indianapolis. WXIN-TV reports some houses near the highway in the area were evacuated due to a smoky cloud from the crash site.

No injuries were immediately reported.
