Two people were hurt in a Tuesday evening crash on I-65 Southbound near the 47 mile marker in Jackson County.

Indiana State Police investigators say that an SUV driven by Daniel L. Stone, 37, of Seymour, was traveling southbound on I-65 when, for an unknown reason, Stone’s vehicle left the right side of the roadway. After leaving the road, the SUV struck the New Farmington Road overpass. Stone’s vehicle overturned and came to rest in the left lane of Southbound I-65.

Authorities say that Stone sustained serious injuries in the crash. He was transported to Scott County Memorial Hospital before being transferred to the University of Louisville Hospital.

A passenger, Tiffany Stone, 35, also of Seymour, was initially entrapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by emergency personnel. She was then flown from the scene to University of Louisville Hospital with serious injuries.

I-65 Southbound was shut down for approximately two hours for crash investigation and cleanup.

The investigation is ongoing.
