Interstate 65 to be restricted tonight for crash cleanup

You can expect lanes of Interstate 65 to be closed tonight as crews clean up from a fatal crash Tuesday evening.

According to Columbus Police Department reports, 51-year-old James McGoff, of Louisville, Kentucky was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash about a mile south of the Columbus exit at about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday night after his semi ran off the road and crashed.

The southbound lanes were closed for several hours for the crash investigation. A second closure will start at about 10 p.m. tonight and will last about 6 hours while crews work to clean up the debris.

That will affect the area between the Columbus and Walesboro exits. Traffic will be rerouted on to State Road 46
