One person died in an accident on northbound Interstate 65 early Tuesday, closing the highway while crews cleared the wreckage. Travel lanes had reopened by the start of morning rush hour. The single-car crash, which involved a commercial vehicle, occurred about 4:30 a.m. near Whiteland. Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said the driver of a semi following the vehicle may have recorded the accident using an onboard video camera. According to the witness, the motorist was driving erratically on I-65, hit the left shoulder, over-corrected off the right shoulder and flipped the vehicle multiple times. The driver was ejected. Cox said alcohol and drugs were not suspected in the crash.
