Newburgh man killed in scooter crash
A Newburgh man is dead following a crash involving a scooter and two other vehicles.
The Vanderburgh County Coroners’s Office identified the victim as 50-year-old Thomas "Bryon" Rump.
An email from the coroner states Rump died at the scene of the crash on Lynch Road near State Road 62 -- close to the Vanderburgh-Warrick county line -- Monday evening.
Evansville Police said Rump was riding the scooter on Lynch when he was rear-ended by a car and thrown from the bike.
Rump was then hit by a truck.
The driver of the car was taken for a blood draw but police don't suspect drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
The coroner’s office scheduled an autopsy for Tuesday evening.
The mishap forced authorities to shut down a portion of Lynch Road for a while Monday evening.
