Gibson County – At approximately 12:02 this morning, two bicyclists were traveling northbound in the emergency shoulder of U.S. 41 approximately 4/10 mile south of Coalmine Road. Aaron Henry, 23, of Princeton, was the lead bicyclist and his friend, a 19-year-old from Evansville, was following. Preliminary investigation reveals a gold or beige colored vehicle was northbound on U.S. 41 and for unknown reasons left the roadway on east side and struck Henry’s bicycle. The vehicle failed to stop and continued northbound on U.S. 41. Henry was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital where he is currently being treated for serious injuries. Henry’s friend was not injured.
The vehicle is gold or beige and should be missing part of the front right (passenger side) bumper. Troopers also believe that the vehicle is possibly a Toyota. Anyone with information concerning this crash is encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police at 867-2079 or 1-800-852-3970. Anyone with information can remain anonymous.
