UPDATE: I-65 reopened as of 10:50 p.m. As of Wednesday morning, about 90 homes were still without power. Traffic lights at I-65 and State Road 25 are still out and the intersection should be treated as a 4-way stop. Original story below.

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- State police are working a semi crash on I-65 that has closed traffic in both directions at the State Road 25 exit.

According to dispatch, power lines lying across the road are making it hard to estimate when the scene may reopen. Duke Energy's online outage map shows about 90 customers without power because of the crash. 

No injuries have been reported and the semi was the only vehicle involved.

The crash happened at Exit 175, which is the State Road 25 interchange to Delphi. At this hour, police are diverting traffic at the State Road 43 and South Street exits.

No timeline for reopening the interstate is available yet. State police are leading the investigation and clean-up.
