RELEASE NUMBER: 2019-NR-030
CONTACT: Sgt. Jeff South or Lt. Mark Rasure
AUTHORITY: Sheriff Dave Wedding
During the late night of July 12th, 2019 deputies with the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the westbound lanes of I-64 near mile marker 22 for a single vehicle crash. Shortly before the report of the crash a witness made a 911 call to report a black Ford F-150 truck weaving from lane to lane as it traveled west on I-64. On scene, deputies observed a single vehicle in the median that appeared to have rolled over several times. Deputies located one individual who appeared to have been ejected as the vehicle rolled over. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene by the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office.
Deputies received unconfirmed information that there was possibly a second person in the vehicle at the time of the crash. The Evansville-Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency assisted deputies in a thorough search of the entire area surrounding the crash site with the use of its unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), but no one else could be located. The factors associated with the crash are still under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office. The identity of the deceased driver will be released by the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office.
