A car crashed into the guardrail on Interstate 69 early Saturday morning and ejected three passengers from the vehicle, according to a Saturday Facebook post from Northern Monroe County Fire Territory. There were eight passengers in the car.
A silver 2004 Honda Pilot struck the guardrail in the southbound lanes just north of the Sample Road exit, according to a Facebook post from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. The car rolled over and slid into the middle of the Interstate.
Three passengers were thrown from the back of the vehicle.
A 21-year-old man broke his leg and experienced head trauma, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. An IU Health LifeLine helicopter flew him to a hospital near Indianapolis.
Two other passengers were taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital with non-life- threatening injuries, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
The southbound lanes of Interstate 69 closed for about one-and-a-half hours after the incident, according to the post.
