LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say one man is in critical condition after a head-on crash on I-65 in Scott County, Indiana, Tuesday evening.

According to a news release from the Indiana State Police, it happened just before 6:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the interstate, near mile marker 27. 

"A preliminary investigation reveals that a black 2009 Toyota Corolla...was traveling southbound on I-65 approaching the 27 mile marker when the vehicle lost control for an unknown reason," the news release states.
