The wane.com website says:

“An Indiana State Trooper was going south on I-69 at about 2 p.m. when he saw vehicles pulled over on the shoulder. As he slowed down, one of the motorists began pointing across the interstate to the northbound side. The trooper looked across the road and saw the semi, which had been pulling a loaded flatbed trailer, about 50 yards east of the interstate.”

No one was at the church at the time. A four-car crash occurred in the northbound lanes of I-69 when motorists slowed down to look at the scene. Here's the article on fox59.com.

I was driving along I-69 when traffic began slowing for what looked like a crash on the highway.  Then I saw multiple emergency vehicle lights that were definitely not on the highway.  I realized what had occurred as I got closer, and decided to circle around with my camera; I had never seen a crash like this...with a truck going completely through a building.
