It is unclear when those lanes will be back open.

INDOT said the work will begin with the left lane. Police say cleanup crews are dealing with an explosion risk.

A passenger in one of the vehicles suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital. Traffic was being diverted off I-65 at Exit 50.

"Something inside that trailer ruptured, which caused the chemicals to leak", Wheeles said. Work is expected to last through the late afternoon hours. The northbound lanes reopened to traffic around 3 p.m., and the southbound lanes opened around 9 p.m. The trailer caught fire around 12 p.m. and was fully engulfed.
