The westbound lanes of Interstate 865 in northwest Marion County were closed earlier because of a semi crash. 

Police say a semi hauling an oversized load was traveling west on I-865 when it struck the underside of the I-465 bridge, possibly causing damage to the structure.

A second semi swerved to avoid a collision with the semi that struck the bridge and drove off the highway.

Bridge inspectors from INDOT are checking the structure to determine its condition. Indiana State Police say the interstate is now open.
