Entry Description

Posey County – Monday morning, August 6, at approximately 8:56 a.m., Indiana State Police and Posey County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on I-64 at the 7 mile-marker that killed an Illinois woman.

Preliminary investigation revealed Carolyn Turner, 65, of Grayville, IL, was driving her 2007 Ford F150 pickup truck eastbound on I-64 at the 7 mile-marker.  Turner had just passed a semi and moved back into the driving lane when her vehicle started to drift off the roadway on the right.  Turner attempted to get her vehicle completely back onto the roadway, but she overcorrected and lost control. The vehicle left the roadway on the right side and traveled approximately 200 feet before overturning onto a highway sign.  The truck’s cab was crushed during the rollover causing the fatal injury.  Turner was pronounced dead at the scene by the Posey County Coroner.  She was wearing a seat belt.

An autopsy will be conducted.  The investigation is continuing.
