Entry Description
Vanderburgh County – A 48-year-old Indiana Department of Transportation employee was seriously injured this afternoon while working along S.R. 62 approximately 300’ west of Boehne Camp Road.

According to Master Trooper Bob Helfrich, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) was dumping a load of rock in the driving lane in order for a track hoe to place in the ditch adjacent to the westbound lanes. INDOT had the driving lane closed to traffic. At approximately 11:45 a.m., a one-foot diameter rock rolled from the closed driving lane into the passing lane. A grain truck traveling west struck the rock with its tire. The rock bounced back toward the driving lane striking INDOT employee Michael Chasteen, 48, of Evansville. He was taken to Deaconess Hospital with a serious leg injury.
