Hancock County Sheriff’s Office deputies continue to investigate a Thursday afternoon fatal crash at the intersection of U.S. Route 30 and state Route .
Upon arrival, deputies reported finding two vehicles with heavy damage. Sheriff Ralph Fletcher said that the initial investigation indicates that a pickup truck traveling north on Veterans Boulevard (state Route 8) began to make a left turn onto Lincoln Highway (U.S. Route 30) but entered into the path of an eastbound mini-van and was struck.
Although the unnamed driver in the pickup ultimately died, a passenger was released at the scene with no apparent injuries, a press release notes. The mini-van driver was treated on scene for minor injuries but was subsequently arrested on an outstanding out-of-state warrant on unrelated charges.
More charges could be filed at the end of this investigation.
