1 lane of I-65 reopened after semi crash Clark County

CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – Indiana State Police say one lane of northbound Interstate 65 has been reopened at the 20 mile marker near Henryville, Indiana after a rollover accident late Thursday morning involving a semi.

According to Sgt. Jerry Goodin of the ISP Sellersburg post, the accident happened around 11:10 a.m. when a pickup truck hit a slick spot and lost control. Goodin said the pickup hit a Freightliner semi hauling a load of frozen food. The tractor and trailer rolled over on its side.

Goodin said all roadways were slick and hazardous in Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington Counties, the five counties covered by ISP District 45, but calls about traffic crashes and vehicle slideoffs were beginning to slow down.

"For about two hours, we had chaos in all the five counties were worked," Goodin said.

The driver of the pickup, Bryan A. Root, 37, of North Vernon, Indiana, was taken to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The semi driver, Michael Brookshire, 34, of Pearisburg, Virginia, was not injured.

ISP said I-65 north at the accident scene is expected to remain partially blocked for several hours.

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
