LYFORD, Ind. (WTHI) - A woman is in serious condition after police say she crashed into a semi in Parke County.

Officials say the driver of the truck was hauling grain from bins along U.S. 41, about half a mile north of the Lyford Y.

Police say the truck driver was turning left when the female driver of a passenger car that was heading south collided with the side of the truck.

The initial call came in around 2:40 Wednesday afternoon.

The driver of the car was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital with serious injuries.

The truck driver was not injured.

Police say they don't believe speed was a factor in the crash.

No citations have been issued at this time, and all lanes have reopened.
