Update On Fatal I-65 Crash Wednesday 

Wednesday morning at approximately 9:45 AM, the Lowell Regional Dispatch Center received 911 calls about a serious injury crash on I-65 southbound near the 230 mile-marker which is about 1/4 mile north of S.R. 10 (Demotte/Roselawn exit), according to Sgt. Glen Fifield of The Indiana State Police.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Willian Stancy shows that a gray 2007 Nissan Altima was southbound in the left lane when the vehicle became disabled due to a flat tire on the rear passenger side. The driver of the Nissan pulled over to the left side of the roadway. At this area of highway, there is not a full lane of emergency shoulder, but a grass median and a narrow area of rumble strips on the outer side of the fog line. The driver parked the Nissan partially in the grass, with a portion of the passenger side still in the left lane of travel. The driver exited the vehicle and was in the process of attempting a tire change on the vehicle that was partially in the roadway.

A blue 2022 Chevrolet Equinox, driven by Jonathan Born, 42, from Galesburg, MI, was traveling southbound in the left lane approaching the 230 mile-marker. The Chevrolet proceeded to strike the right rear of the Nissan, also striking the driver who was outside of the vehicle. The Chevrolet came to a rest in the grass median. The driver of the Nissan suffered severe injuries and a helicopter was called to the scene. However, the patient succumbed to the injuries and died at the scene prior to being transported.

The driver of the Nissan was identified as Miles S. Williams, 25, from Noblesville, IN. This crash is being reconstructed by the Indiana State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit.

Assisting at the scene were the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department, Keener Twp. Fire Department, INDOT, and Cheever’s Towing.
