HILLSBORO, Ind. - Indiana State Police have identified the driver that was killed when a semi struck a bridge support Friday just north of Hillsboro, about 15 miles west of Crawfordville.
The driver of the semi was Dale C. Johnstone Jr, 42, of Canton, Ohio, ISP confirmed.
Interstate 74 was closed in both directions between the State Road 25 and U.S. 41 exits in western Indiana after the crash at 5:30 p.m.
For an unknown reason, police said the semi left the road, entering the median, and crashed into the bridge support to State Road 341, killing the driver.
Police said the semi was considered a total loss. It was carrying a trailer full of cat food which was strewn all over both east and westbound lanes of I-74.
It was not clear how long it would take to clean up the cat food and remove the semi from the scene. Drivers were encouraged to use detours until further notice.
State police say Indiana Department of Transportation bridge inspectors were on the scene and deemed the bridge safe for travel.
