Entry Description

Bartholomew County: This morning two semi’s involved in a crash resulted in a major traffic back up on I-65. According to Senior Trooper Stephen Wheeles, at approximately 6:00 this morning a 2007 Freightliner semi tractor-trailer rig driven by 53 year old George Brewington of Lexington, KY was just pulling back out onto northbound I-65 near the 59 mile marker after being parked on the shoulder of the roadway when a northbound 2004 Volvo semi tractor-trailer rig driven by 38 year old Tony Robinson of Lawrenceburg, KY struck the rear of the Freightliner causing extensive damage to both vehicles. Neither driver was injured in the crash but I-65 northbound was limited to one lane for several hours causing a traffic back up of several miles.

Sergeant Brian Wilson reported at approximately 6:35 a.m., a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle driven by 52 year old Donald J. Klaes of Seymour was northbound on I-65 near the 57.5 mile marker when he had to stop suddenly due to the traffic back up from the semi crash. Klaes lost control of the bike and was thrown where he landed head first onto the roadway. He was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital for possible fractured ribs and other internal injuries. Klaes was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Sgt. Wilson commented, “His helmet had extensive damage but probably saved his life.”

Assisting S/Tpr. Wheeles at the scene was several other troopers and Indiana Department of Transportation. The crash remains under investigation.
