250 West. She explained that a preliminary investigation, revealed that a semi-tractor, hauling timber, was traveling east on Lowell Road when the driver began to navigate a 90-degree turn in the roadway. Authorities say that during the course of the turn, the semi overturned, losing its load of timber and coming to rest on its side.

The driver of the semi was injured and flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Authorities say that they do not yet know the name of the driver, or his condition.

Lowell Road has since re-opened.
