(SEYMOUR) – A Seymour couple suffered severe injuries when their vehicle left the interstate and struck an overpass on Tuesday night.
According to an Indiana State Police, a 2011 GMC Acadia driven by 37-year-old Daniel Stone left the southbound lane of Interstate 65 for an unknown reason at the 47-mile-marker between Seymour and Uniontown and struck the New Farmington Road overpass.
The vehicle overturned and came to rest in the left southbound lane of the interstate beneath the overpass.
Daniel Stone was taken to Scott Memorial Health in Scottsburg before being transferred to the University of Louisville Hospital.
His passenger, 35-year-old Tiffany Stone, was trapped in the vehicle and was extricated by first responders.
