Crash kills one on Evansville's south side: EPD


EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A crash on the South Side of Evansville Wednesday afternoon has claimed one life, police said.

According to Evansville Police Department Sgt. John McQuay, the crash happened near the intersection of Garvin Street and Chandler Avenue around 4:25 p.m. and involved two vehicles.

A pickup truck was driving north on Garvin and hit a flatbed tow truck parked on the left side of the road. The pickup truck struck the tow truck in the right rear corner of the flatbed, McQuay said.

An extrication unit was called to the scene for what was originally believed to be a crash with injuries but when Evansville Fire arrived it was determined the driver of the pickup was dead.

McQuay said the tow truck was parked properly and was unoccupied at the time of the collision. Despite it raining all day, wet roads are not believed to have been a particular factor in the crash, as there was no standing water or other obvious hazards in the area, police said. 

An investigation by police and the coroner's office into the cause of the crash is ongoing.

The identity of the driver has not been released.
