Entry Description

Perry County:  A hit and run crash on I-64 has killed a Boonville man.

Last night at approximately 7:51 p.m. CDT the Tell City Dispatch Center received a 911 call reporting a crash on I-64 at mile post 73.5 westbound.  Initial information reveals that Kenneth G. Derr, 64, Boonville and his brother Michael W. Derr, 69, Evansville had pulled off onto the north shoulder to change a flat tire on their trailer. The flat tire was on the left (driver’s) side of the trailer.  Kenneth was in the process of changing the tire when a dark colored, believed to be an older model dark blue small pick-up truck or passenger car crossed over the fog line and hit Kenneth.  Then without stopping the suspect vehicle continued west on I-64.

Kenneth was pronounced dead at the scene by the Perry County Coroner’s Office.  An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow in Tell City.  Michael was not injured.

The Derr’s vehicle, a black 1996 Jeep Cherokee and the trailer they were pulling were not damaged.
The suspect vehicle has not been located and should have damage to the front right (passenger’s) side. 

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to call the Jasper Post at 812-482-1441 or 800-742-7475.
