An accident between a semi and a car shuts down traffic in northern Vanderburgh County.

It happened around 4:30 a.m. Friday in the southbound lanes near Ruffian Way.

Deputies say a car was trying to get around a semi before the construction zone started. The car was sideswiped by the semi and sent into the guardrail.

The female driver of the car and her male passenger were taken to Deaconess. There's no word on their names on conditions.

The semi driver was not hurt.

Deputies closed the southbound lanes at various times in order for the accident scene to be cleaned up. This caused traffic to back up at times.

A wrecker arrived on scene to take the car away.
