A Crown Point man was injured and his car was totaled in a rollover crash Tuesday on Interstate 65 near Lowell, Indiana State Police said. 

Brett Novelli, 18, is expected to be charged with operating while intoxicated involving drugs in connection with the crash, police said.

Novelli was airlifted to Loyola University Medical Center, in Maywood, for treatment of his injuries, police said. He'd initially been taken to Franciscan St. Anthony Health hospital, Crown Point.

Novelli was driving southbound in the left lane of I-65, just north of the Lowell exit, at about 10:50 a.m. when his car went off the road for unknown reasons, police said.

Novelli over-corrected, went back across southbound lanes and off the road to the right, police said. Novelli's 2007 PT Cruiser rolled over numerous times before coming to rest in the grassy ditch, police said.
