JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. - A two-vehicle crash took the life of a Columbus, Ind., woman on Interstate 65 in Johnson County on Thursday evening.
The wreck happened in the northbound lanes of I-65 near the 86 mile marker, south of Franklin and north of Edinburgh, around 7 p.m., officials said.
Indiana State Police said Karianne Bjordal, 21, was driving a BMW and ran into the back of a semi. Bjordal was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
Authorities said a small dog in the BMW survived the crash and was given to an acquaintance of Bjordal.

The driver of the semi was not injured.
Northbound lanes of I-65 were closed for about two and a half hours and reopened around 9:30 p.m.
