LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A semi truck blew a tire and burst into flames in the northbound lanes of I-65 in southern Indiana Tuesday night.

It happened at around 11:15 p.m., just before Lewis and Clark Parkway.

WDRB Photojournalist Zach Crabtree was headed home when he saw the truck catch on fire. He called 911 and pulled over to check on the driver who was already out of the truck.

The driver was not hurt.

The semi was hauling sand.
