Crash on I-64 Sends Three to Area Hospitals

FLOYDS KNOBS — On April 27, 2011 at approximately 2:41PM, the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department received a call regarding an injury accident on I-64 westbound just before the Greenville exit (Exit 119) involving multiple vehicles.  The Floyd County Combined Accident Reconstruction Team (CART) was called to the scene to assist in the investigation.

CART was formed in July 2007 by Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson to investigate all fatality crashes and those involving serious injury which may result in criminal charges.  CART members have additional training in crash reconstruction and scene diagramming.

The preliminary investigation reveals that a green Pontiac driven by ANDREW STUEBLING, age 50, of Georgetown, IN was traveling eastbound on I-64 when he lost control for unknown reasons and crossed the median between a guardrail and a large rock wall.  After crossing the median, Stuebling’s vehicle collided with three other vehicles including a tractor trailer.  The drivers of the other vehicles, SHARON MILLER, age 59, of Jeffersonville and YOLANDA KYER, age 40, of Louisville, KY were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.  The driver of the tractor trailer, JESSE PHILPOTT, age 36, of Centerton, Arkansas was not injured.  STUEBLING was transported to the University of Louisville Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  He was not wearing his seat belt.  It is believed that seat belt usage would have reduced his injuries.

As is standard in crashes of this nature, toxicology results on the drivers involved are pending.

I-64 was restricted to one lane for approximately two hours during the investigation and clean-up.  This crash remains under investigation.
