Wheeles says that the initial investigation, by Trooper Tia Deaton, indicated that a car driven by 23-year-old Ye Sun, of Urbana, IL was merging onto northbound I-65 from State Road 11 when he pulled into the path of a tractor trailer driven by 37-year-old Said Adam, of Cincinnati. ISP says that Sun’s vehicle collided with the trailer Adam was pulling, causing Sun’s vehicle to overturn before coming to rest in the northbound lanes of I-65.

Wheeles says that Sun, along with his two passengers, were injured in the crash. Sun was extricated from the vehicle before being flown to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis for what are being called “serious” injuries. His two passengers were transported to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour. Adam was not injured.

State Police say that northbound I-65 was closed for approximately two hours for crash investigation and cleanup.
