A Crown Point man was seriously injured on Monday after rolling his vehicle on I-65 in Lake County, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 10:51 a.m. Brett Novelli, 18, was southbound in the left lane of I-65, one mile north of the Lowell exit, when for unknown reasons he left the roadway to the left.

Novelli over-corrected, traveled across the southbound lanes, then left the roadway again but this time to the right, where his 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser rolled multiple times before coming to rest in a grassy ditch.

Novelli was transported to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Crown Point with serious injuries and subsequently airlifted to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill.

The PT Cruiser was totaled.
