ROSELAWN — A semitrailer rollover shut down a stretch of northbound lanes and sent one to a hospital Friday afternoon. 

The lanes reopened around 6:30 p.m., however another crash caused another blockage for northbound drivers. 

Police responded to a passenger car crash about 10 miles from the semi rollover at 5:30 p.m. with minor injuries. The crash was in the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 at the 219-mile marker in Rensselaer. 

As of 7 p.m., northbound lanes were still congested due to lane closures in the area, police reported. 

At 2:40 p.m. first responders were called to a single-vehicle wreck in the northbound lanes of I-65 at the 229-mile marker near the Roselawn/Demotte exit, said Indiana State Police Cpl. Eric Rot. 

A semi rolled over across all northbound lanes causing major blockages. The driver was taken to a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.
