Driver hospitalized after wreck on I-565

MADISON, Ala. – A portion of Interstate 565 is back open this morning after crews cleaned up a single-vehicle wreck. Paramedics took the driver to Huntsville Hospital for treatment.

Officers say the wreck happened just before midnight near the Wall Triana Highway exit.

Investigators believe the woman’s SUV left the westbound lanes, barely missed a guardrail, and hit a pole. It took rescue crews roughly 15 minutes to get her out of the vehicle.

The driver had non-life-threatening injuries.

Crews blocked the outside westbound lane of I-565 for about an hour.
