(JAMESTOWN) - Police say a car going the wrong way on Interstate 74 in central Indiana crashed head-on into a semi trailer, starting a fire and closing the highway for hours.

The woman driving the car was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries after the crash about 3 a.m. Wednesday on I-74 near the Boone County town of Jamestown, about 20 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The semi caught fire and its trailer burned until only the metal frame remained. The car's engine compartment was smashed in, with the wreckage in the highway's median.

Trucker Donald Bentley of North Carolina tells a local TV station he was hauling a load of furniture in I-74's westbound lanes when he saw the car coming toward him fast and he was unable to avoid the crash.
