Troopers said at approximately 1 p.m. a crash occurred on southbound Interstate 65, near the 174 mile marker, which is one mile south of the State Road 25 exit.

ISP Trooper A.J. Smith said the driver, 57-year-old Brian McCoskey of Lebanon, was headed south in the left lane on I-65 when his vehicle went into the left berm. They said McCoskey over corrected and shot across both lanes of traffic, rolled onto the guard rail and traveled down the guard rail about 75 feet before coming to rest on top of the guard rail.

McCoskey had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Lafayette Fire Department. He was transported to IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette by Tippecanoe County EMS.

Authorities report at this time, McCoskey’s injuries appear to be non-life threatening.
