HENRYVILLE, Ind. — An Indiana man is dead after a crash on I-65 North on Tuesday morning.
Around 1:45 a.m., first responders responded to a three-vehicle crash on I-65 N near Henryville and found Matthew Shannon Campbell, 55, of Austin, Indiana dead at the scene.
Investigators believe a white Dodge pickup truck was traveling northbound on I-65 while pulling a flatbed trailer loaded with large A/C unites when one of the units fell off the trailer near the 21-mile marker.
Campbell, who was driving a Chevy Malibu on I-65 N, struck the A/C unit with his car before the driver of the pickup truck could remove it from the roadway, according to an Indiana State Police news release.
Shortly after, a UPS semi truck changed lanes to avoid striking the Malibu at the exact moment Campbell was exiting his vehicle. He was struck and killed by the semi truck.
ISP is investigating the deadly crash.
All lanes of I-65 North near the Henryville exit were blocked off for several hours. The interstate was reopened at around 7 a.m.
