1 killed in I-74 crash involving rolled-over semi in Shelby County

FAIRLAND, Ind. (WISH) — A person is dead after a Wednesday morning crash involving a rolled-over semitractor-trailer on the westbound lanes of Interstate 74 in Shelby County.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened just before 3:30 a.m. near the London Road exit.

The driver of the semi, 21-year-old Temirlan Baizakov, of Chicago, told authorities he was carrying a light load and lost control due to heavy wind. The semi swerved, flipped over and skidded into the median.

It was struck by a Mercedes driven by Gary Oldham, 30, of Shelbyville. Oldham was pronounced dead.

Baizakov was not injured in the crash.

The semi was back on its wheels around 5:45 a.m.
