Indiana State Police investigate an early-morning crash involving a semi-truck off of Interstate 64.

The crash took place near the 43 mile-marker in Warrick County.

The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries from the crash.  The truck ended up off the road and into a nearby ditch.

ISP and the Warrick County Sheriff's Office closed one eastbound lane of I-64 as crews continued to clean up from the accident.

According to ISP Sgt. Todd Ringle, the left lane of eastbound I-64 will remain closed until approximately 2:00 p.m. Friday while crews continue to clean diesel fuel.

Sgt. Ringle says the driver reportedly fell asleep at the wheel, and that he's being treated at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital for face/chest injuries.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
