A Demotte motorist was injured today when she lost control of her car on I-65 and went airborne into some trees, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 7:58 a.m. Bridget Birzek, 44, was northbound on I-65 when for unknown reasons she lost control of her 2008 Mazda, on a dry stretch of road not receiving snow.

Birzek’s Mazda left the roadway, hit a ditch, and went airborne into the trees, police said.

Birzek--who was wearing her seatbelt--was transported to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Crown Point with non-life threatening injuries.

The Mazda was a total loss.
