Police are investigating a crash on I-465 that sent two people to the hospital.

It happened around 2:30 am Wednesday near Sam Jones Expressway on the southwest side.

A driver in an SUV told police someone cut him off and that forced him to slam into the back of a truck.

The truck was carrying a tank of salt-water fish.

The driver of the SUV got out, but his passenger was trapped inside for about 35 minutes. Both were taken to Wishard, the passenger had injuries to her face.

The truck driver was not hurt.

Police believe alcohol may be a factor in the crash. All lanes have since reopened.
