A painter was injured on Friday in Dubois County after an incident on I-64, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Originally, the transportation department thought that a bridge on I-64 had been hit - but after further investigation, it was discovered that an incident involving a semi-truck injured a worker on the bridge.

INDOT tells us a semi blew through a work zone on the I-64 bridge that goes over Ferdinand Road. According to INDOT, that's when the truck clipped a cable, causing tarps and a worker to fall from where a painting job was taking place.

The worker was taken to the hospital with injuries but there's no word on the severity of those injuries at this time.

All lanes of I-64 were closed for over an hour while an investigation took place but have since reopened.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
