EDINBURGH, Ind. — A man is dead and a woman has been hospitalized after a single-vehicle crash early Sunday morning.

Indianapolis State Police say they are investigating a crash that occurred at approximately 2:45 a.m. in Shelby County.

Police say it appears a vehicle with two passengers was traveling southbound on Interstate 65 when it crossed the median into the northbound lane near State Road 252 and flipped.

Responding officers found both victims trapped inside the vehicle. EMS personnel and rescue crews were able to remove both passengers from the entrapment. The man was unconscious, and despite the best life-saving measures applied, was pronounced dead on-scene as a result of the crash. That man has been identified as 41-year-old Kenneth Cubbage Jr., of Freetown.

The woman, 62, was taken to Methodist Hospital in stable condition.

All southbound and northbound lanes on I-65 were closed for approximately 30 to 45 minutes while first responders attempted to rescue the victims. Police say they closed all lanes as a precaution because it was dark and foggy at the time of the crash. All lanes have since been reopened.
