Two Killed, One Injured in Posey Crash


The pickup truck ran off W. Franklin Road

Authorities have released the names of the two people killed in a crash in Posey County Tuesday night. WNIN’s John Gibson has the update:

Sheriff Tom Latham says the crash on West Franklin Road, just south of State Road 62, claimed the lives of Christopher Wagner and Justus Ricketts.

A passenger in the pickup truck, Daniel Powell, survived the crash and was taken to a hospital.

Latham said the truck was headed north when the driver failed to negotiate a curve and the car hit an embankment and crashed into trees.

The impact ejected two people from the truck and left one trapped inside.

An investigation continues.
