A late night wreck on Interstate 65 sent a woman to the hospital in serious condition.

The wreck happened around 11:00 Monday night, when the 28-year-old female driver was heading north on I-65 before going off the road at mile marker 330.

The victim told investigators an 18-wheeler came into her lane and collided with her, ripping the bumper off her car and sending the car into a cement drainage ditch in the median.

Alabama State Troopers continue their investigation, including searching for the 18-wheeler that allegedly left the scene.
