A jackknifed semi closed northbound I-65 Wednesday morning in Jasper County.

It happened during icy conditions around 5:30 a.m. two miles north of the Rennsselaer exit. A 45 year-old Illinois man was driving the semi when he lost control and crashed into the center median barrier cable.

The crash caused extensive damage to both the tractor and about 50 miles of the median cable barrier, according to the Indiana State Police.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The lanes were closed for two hours.
