INDIANAPOLIS - Wayne Township Fire and Rescue crews rescued a driver after his van slid under a box truck Thursday night, authorities said.
The crash happened on Interstate 465 near mile marker 11.8 just before 10 p.m.
Officials said an airport shuttle van from Holiday Inn hit the back of a Panther Expedited Services truck that was stalled on southbound I-465.
The back of the box truck sheared off most of the van's roof, officials said.
Authorities said the driver of the van was extricated by firefighters in about 10 minutes.
Officials said the driver only suffered minor injuries and was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital in stable condition.
The driver of the box truck was not injured and no other passengers were in the shuttle.
The right two lanes of southbound I-465 were closed near U.S. 40/West Washington Street for an hour after the accident.
