A Monday afternoon semi crash closed the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 for about four hours Monday.

The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department says that at about 3 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the 71.7-mile marker. Authorities say a semi-tractor trailer left the roadway and struck a tree. The driver, 25-year-old Wilburn Jackson of Missouri, was pinned inside the cab. He was ultimately extracted by fire department personnel.

Jackson was life-lined to a trauma center in Indianapolis. His condition is unknown.
