At least one southbound lane of I-65 near Southport Road is back open after a jackknifed semi had blocked both lanes, causing massive backups Monday morning. 

Just after 6:10 a.m., IFD responded to a wreck involving a car and a jackknifed semi. Both southbound lanes and one northbound lanes were closed near Southport Road and south of Edgewood Avenue.

There were no injuries in the wreck. Emergency crews took one woman to Saint Francis South, who was stuck in the traffic jam while in labor. 

No word of any injuries at this time.
