PLAINFIELD — A crash that sent one person to the hospital on Thursday evening closed all westbound lanes of I-70 at State Road 267 near Exit 66 in Plainfield.

When officials arrived at the scene earlier in the evening, Plainfield Fire Department had to extradite a driver involved in the accident from their vehicle. Once officials retrieved the man, he had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital due to sustained injuries from the crash, according to Indiana State Police Public Information Officer, John Perrine.

According to ISP, the driver was awake and alert when officials got to him.

At this time, the cause of the crash cannot be confirmed.

Not others were injured in the crash.
