[ISP] Injured Man Found Along Interstate 70 in Vigo County

Entry Description

Vigo County---Early this morning at 3:30, Indiana State Police and Vigo County emergency agencies responded to a report of an injured person found along the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the 12 mile marker. Passersby had reported the incident.

Indiana State Police Trooper Michael Featherling found the injured and intoxicated person lying in a watery ditch approximately 50 feet south of I-70. The victim was treated at the scene by members of the Riley Fire/Rescue Department and Trans Care Ambulance Service and then taken to Terre Haute Regional Hospital. He was later transferred by ground ambulance to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of a lower left leg fracture.

The injured person was identified as David E. Halcomb, age 18, of Clayton, Indiana (Hendricks County). Halcomb’s intoxication level was .12 BAC.

Troopers believe Halcomb was one of two passengers in a vehicle driven by a friend. The trio is believed to have been traveling back to Hendricks County after an evening in Terre Haute. During the return trip, an argument began inside the vehicle and resulted in Halcomb being left in the ditch. At this time, it is unclear whether Halcomb was forced from the vehicle or exited on his own while the vehicle was in motion. Troopers have tentatively identified the friends who left the scene prior to their arrival.

The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released when it becomes available.

Assisting were ISP Troopers Brian Thomas and Don Curtis, Vigo County Sheriff’s Office, Riley Fire/Rescue Department and Trans Care Ambulance Service.
