One person is dead after a wreck involving a church van and a semi in Posey County.

The Posey County Sheriff's Office says the wreck happened near the New Harmony exit on I-64.

Officials who were on scene say a semi and a van were heading west on I-64. They believe a tire blew out on the van and the semi tried to avoid it causing the semi to overturned in the median.

The Vanderburgh County Coroners Office says a passenger in the van, 29-year-old Christopher Williams, of Marion, IL, was air lifted to Deaconess Hospital where later he died from his injuries.

We're told the semi driver was also air lifted to an area hospital. No word on the driver's name or condition at this time.

The Posey County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident.
