Traffic on I-65 in Columbus, Indiana, slowed on Monday, Jan. 15, after a crash left an RV hanging over the edge of an overpass.

The crash happened on I-65 near State Road 46, WBIW reported.

One southbound lane was shut down at the 68-mile marker while state police worked to remove the trailer.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, public information officer for the Indiana State Police, tweeted that one southbound lane was blocked, and police were preparing to block all the southbound lanes in order to remove the vehicle.

Around 1:30 p.m., he tweeted that all the lanes had been reopened.

He also tweeted a photo of what looked like a tow truck lifting the RV back onto the overpass.

The weather is supposed to remain below freezing during the week but get up into the 40s and 50s over the weekend, AccuWeather.com reports.

On Monday, police and weather forecasters warned drivers that the roads were expected to be slick.

The state issued a yellow weather alert for Bartholomew County, which encompasses Columbus, saying that “travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation.”

“Individuals should use caution or avoid those areas,” it says.
