On Friday, June 26, 2015 at 12:20 am, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of
I-64 near the 21 mile marker. A truck and trailer belonging to Krutzer Construction from Bowling Green Ohio had broken down on the shoulder of the interstate in the eastbound lanes and was waiting to be towed. A semi truck and trailer belonging to Penske Truck Leasing struck the unoccupied truck. No injuries were reported, however both vehicles required towing from the scene.
Both eastbound lanes had to be temporarily shut down in order to tow a semi trailer. While blocking traffic, a Sheriff’s Office vehicle was struck by an approaching vehicle. Several tractor trailers had stopped in the right hand travel lane and had activated their hazard lights. A passenger car continued in the left lane and struck an unoccupied Sheriff’s Office vehicle which had its emergency lights activated.
The driver of the passenger car was cited for Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle and Operating without Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in either accident and no injuries were reported.

Indianapolis, IN – Indiana Conservation Officers will be joining thousands of law enforcement officers across the United States who will be on heightened alert for those violating boating under the influence laws during the annual Operation Dry Water weekend, June 26-28. Operation Dry Water is a nationally coordinated heightened awareness and enforcement campaign, focused on deterring boaters from boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in recreational boater deaths, and a leading factor in recreational boating accidents. Law enforcement agencies from every U.S. state and territory are expected to participate in Operation Dry Water weekend, focusing their efforts on detecting impaired boaters and educating the public about the dangers of boating under the influence. In 2014, alcohol use was the primary factor in nearly one-fourth (21%) of boater deaths.
“The decision about whether to drink and boat under the influence is a choice every boater makes, ” says Lt. Kenton Turner, Indiana Boating Law Administrator. “Boating under the influence is a 100% preventable crime. Operation Dry Water, participating law enforcement agencies and our boating safety partners encourage boaters to stay safe by staying sober while boating.”
By Nov. 1, 2017, the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) is required by federal mandate to inspect and clean all manholes and approximately 610 miles of its small-diameter sewer lines in its service area. Unfortunately, many residents have obstructions on or near their property lines blocking the Utility’s access in water and sewer easements.
EWSU has until Nov. 1, 2015, to complete cleaning and inspections and cleanings in 70 percent of its system, and the Utility is on track to meet that goal. However, many of the remaining sewer access points throughout the service area are blocked by plants, fences, pools and even buildings, making these inspections nearly impossible for EWSU crews.
Clear easements provide Utility crews with safe, immediate access to the system for routine inspections and maintenance. They are also essential for quick response to emergencies, such as sewer backups, which may be a public health hazard.
