A multiple semi crash had closed all lanes of south bound I-65 with traffic being diverted at the 215 mile marker (Rensselaer exit). Preliminary investigation revealed that just after 5 am, Monday, traffic was stopped in both lanes of I-65 southbound near the 205 mile marker (Remington exit) due to an earlier crash that caused the left lane to be closed. A Freightliner pulling a box trailer, and driven by 27 year old Ikhtiyor Sulaymanov, of Brooklyn, New York, was stopped in the right lane at the 206 mile marker. Directly in front of Sulaymanov, also stopped in the right lane, was a Freightliner pulling an empty flatbed trailer, driven by 28 year old Zachery R. McGuire, LaPorte, Indiana. For unknown reasons a Freightliner pulling a box trailer, owned by 56 year old Willie C. Brown, of Van Buren, Michigan, and driven by Brown failed to slow down/stop and hit the rear of Sulaymanov’s trailer. This pushed Sulaymanov’s semi into the rear of McGuire’s trailer. All three semis came to rest in the right lane or right shoulder with debris covering all lanes. Brown was flown from the scene by IU Lifeline with multiple injuries. Sulaymanov was taken to Jasper County Regional Hospital in Rensselaer with non-life threatening injuries. McGuire was treated and released at the scene for minor injuries. South bound I-65 traffic was diverted off at the 215 mile marker until 8:00 a.m., when the left lane was reopened to allow traffic backup to clear. The interstate south bound was then reclosed. Brown was also traveling with two dogs; one was located at the scene and taken for safe keeping at the Jasper County Animal Control facility, a second dog a Doberman pincher type dog fled and has not been located.
