(WHAS11)  Indiana State Police, Sellersburg, Indiana confirmed Sunday afternoon that there was a double fatal accident on I65 south at the 30.5 mile marker. 

WHAS11 was told that it was a three-vehicle accident.  Two of the vehicles were travelling northbound on I65.   Somehow both of those vehicles crossed over the median into the southbound lanes and one of them was hit head-on by a semi.

The vehicle not involved in the collision called 911.  Both occupants in the vehicle that was hit were killed.  The semi driver is okay.

The road in that area is expected to be closed for another 2 to 3 hours.  

The re-construction crew is headed to the scene.  Traffic will be re-routed at Austin and then back on at Scottsburg, until the scene has been cleared.
