INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Interstate 65 has reopened about four hours after a crash closed the northbound lanes downtown Monday evening.

A semi crashed on the interstate ramp in the north split just before 6 p.m. The semi crashed into the outside barrier on the ramp, knocking a large chunk of concrete out of the wall.

The impact also sent the hood of the semi over the guardrail onto the shoulder of the highway under the overpass. The truck then continued 50 yards from the point of impact before stopping.

Crews added a guardrail over the hole in the concrete barrier as part of the repairs.

The interstate reopened to northbound traffic shortly before 10:30 p.m. Monday.
