Semi Accident Injures Six

Steve Wagner

A semi-truck started a chain of accidents last night in Seymour, IN, injuring several and closing I-65 down for over 5 hours.

The driver of the semi told police that traffic came to a sudden stop, and he did not have time to stop the truck before running into a Pontiac Vibe in front of him. The Vibe spun out of control and ended up in the emergency lane. The semi then ran into a GMC Yukon and pushed it off into a ditch. After that, the semi struck a Nissan Altima, which was pushed forward into the back of a Toyota Rav4, and also into a box truck. The semi pushed the Altima so hard that it became wedged underneath the box truck.

Several were injured at the scene, including the driver of the Pontiac who was flown to Methodist with head and leg injuries, two people in the Yukon, who were taken to Schneck Medical Center with minor injuries, the driver of the Altima, who was taken to Louisville Hospital withinternal injuries. The driver of the semi was transported to Schneck Medical Center with a hand injury.

The driver of the box truck was treated at the scene for back pain, and all other passengers were uninjured.

The accident happened around 4:40 yesterday afternoon, but I-65 did not reopen until after 10 p.m.
