A husband and wife were airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after a crash just before 10am this morning on northbound I-65. Indiana State Police Lowell Post report a preliminary investigation revealed a pick up driven by a 66 year old DeMotte man left the roadway, about four-miles south of the DeMotte/Roselawn exit, then came back onto the roadway in the right lane, then entered the left lane and hit another pick up driven by a 53 year old Alabama woman. Authorities say that impact caused the Alabama woman's vehicle to veer off the road onto the median, where it struck the concrete median barrier wall. State Police report I-65 had to be closed for a time for the landing of the helicopter that flew the Alabama woman and her 68 year old husband to Indianapolis with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the other pickup that caused the crash suffered minor injuries.
