Rensselaer, IN – An interstate shooting on I-65 in Indiana resulted in a truck driver sustaining life-threatening injuries and a three-hour shutdown of the highway. 

According to Indiana State police reports, the incident occurred around 4:45 p.m. near the 224 mile-marker, just south of the Roselawn/Demotte exit. Indiana State Troopers were swift to respond, providing critical first aid until a medical helicopter could transport the victim to a hospital in Indianapolis. The necessary landing of the helicopter on the interstate and the subsequent investigation by detectives and crime scene units led to a significant closure of both northbound and southbound lanes until 8:00 p.m.

As the Indiana State Police continue their investigation, they urge anyone with information or who may have witnessed suspicious activity to come forward. The shooting has heightened awareness around interstate safety, prompting calls for information that could assist in the investigation. The identity of the victim has not been released, and updates on their condition are awaited.
