Entry Description

Vanderburgh County – Wednesday morning, May 1, at approximately 8:20, Nicholas Schipp, 31, of Evansville, was traveling westbound on I-64 near the 19 mile-marker when he collided into the rear of an (INDOT) Indiana Department of Transportation vehicle pulling a crash attenuator, which is also known as a crash cushion.

INDOT had the passing lane of I-64 at the 19 mile-marker closed for approximately 15 minutes for highway maintenance before the crash occurred. The INDOT vehicle was not damaged, but the crash attenuator was destroyed. Schipp’s 2008 Dodge Magnum was totaled. Schipp was wearing a seat belt and did not required medical attention.

Indiana State Police and Indiana Department of Transportation encourage all motorists to pay attention when traveling in and around highway maintenance projects. Many of these highway vehicles are either stopped in the roadway or moving at slower speeds. The truck and crash attenuator that were struck also had a flashing arrow board indicating that motorists need to move into the driving lane. Warnings signs were posted on I-64 miles indicating highway maintenance was ahead. Schipp was cited for failing to yield the right of way to a stationary highway maintenance vehicle.

Investigating Officer: Trooper Kylen Compton
Assisting Officer: Senior Trooper Jon Puskas
