Vanderburgh County – Tuesday at approximately 4:52 p.m., Indiana State Police and Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single vehicle crash on I-164 at the 19 ½ mile-marker that claimed the life of a Boonville man.
Preliminary investigation revealed Michael K. Horn, 47, of Boonville, was driving his 1988 Chrysler northbound on I-164 approaching the 19 ½ mile-marker when for unknown reasons he’s vehicle left the roadway on the west side and drove approximately 500 feet in the grassy median before colliding into the impact barrels and concrete support wall at the Elberfeld Road overpass. Moments before the crash, Evansville Central Dispatch had received several 911 calls reporting Horn’s vehicle was north of the 18 mile-marker driving all over the roadway. Horn was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers are still attempting to determine if Horn was wearing a seat belt. The investigation is continuing and an autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
