Deputies say four people were airlifted to the hospital after a crash Wednesday night in Whitley County.

Investigators say it happened around 6:00 when a van headed south on I-75 swerved to miss a vehicle and over corrected.

Deputies say when the van rolled into the median, the five people inside were ejected.

And it didn't end there.

According to investigators, the van continued into the northbound lane and hit a semi truck.

The semi driver wasn't hurt.

Deputies say four people in the van were flown to the hospital and the fifth victim was taken by ambulance to a Corbin hospital.

No word yet on their condition.
