LOST RIVER TOWNSHIP — A Tuesday evening crash in southern Martin County claimed the life of a Sullivan County man.

Killed in the 8:18 p.m. accident on Windom Road at Simmons Creek Road was Dalton T. Sutt, 28, Carlisle, according to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office. Carlisle is located midway between Terre Haute and Vincennes.
