Statement From Madison County Sheriff Department
Madison County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a personal injury crash that occurred on Friday, November 25th at approximately 11am. A 2008 Mack dump truck pulling a flatbed trailer operated by an Indianapolis man was traveling northbound I-69 at the 227.6 mile marker.
The dump truck veered off the left side of the roadway where it crossed the median and over the barrier cable becoming airborne. The dump truck entered northbound traffic where it struck a southbound semi-truck with trailer containing frozen food operated by a Abilene, Texas man. The dump truck came to rest on its side blocking both lanes of southbound traffic.
The semi was pushed off the right side of the roadway from the collision coming to rest on its side in a field. The drivers of each vehicle were the only involved individuals and both were transported to St. Vincent – Anderson hospital with non-life threatening injuries at this time.
The northbound lanes of I-69 have reopened, all southbound lanes are closed and anticipated to be so for several hours. The crash remains under investigation.

After speaking with the sheriff department we have been updated that there has been NO FATALITY at this time. In this story we have added screenshots from the fire department (these posts have now been removed). I want to personally apologize for the inaccurate info that has been given, we do our best to make sure the info we give is true and accurate to the best of our ability but unfortunately sometimes a source may be incorrect by mistake.
