JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. (Dec. 11, 2015)– All northbound and southbound lanes of I-65 were closed just south of Franklin after two separate crashes Friday. The southbound lanes are open, but slow. The northbound lanes remain closed.
State police say they are investigating a four-vehicle crash on I-65 southbound at the 84 mile marker.
According to police, traffic had come to a stop in a construction zone for an unknown reason. A dump truck traveling southbound wasn’t able to stop before hitting a car that was stopped in the traffic. That car then hit another car that was also stopped.
The debris from the crash caused damage to a fourth.
The driver of the dump truck was identified as Troy Wilson, 40, of Columbus. Wilson was not injured. Allen Bidwell, 36, of Greenwood was driving a silver Ford Taurus that was hit by the dump truck. Bidwell was transported to a hospital by a medical helicopter. His status is not known at this time.
The third vehicle involved , a 2016 Dodge Charger, was driven by Timothy Arnold, 40, of Indianapolis. Arnold was not injured.
A 2003 Ford F-150, driven by Nancy Woodcock of Boggstown, was hit by debris.
The northbound crash, about a mile away, involves multiple vehicles including semis.
