A Kentucky man was seriously hurt in a Wednesday morning crash on I-65. Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, says that at around 5:55 a.m., deputies were dispatched to southbound I-65 near the 61.5-mile maker.

Upon arrival, first-responders reported finding a semi-tractor with heavy damage. It appeared the driver, 65-year-old Scott Pearson, of Louisville, had run off the roadway. Jackson says that Pearson was extracted by fire units and stabilized by EMS before being flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
