FULDA — One person was killed and three others injured in a Thursday night collision between Fulda and New Boston.

Deceased at the scene of the 8:07 p.m. CT crash on State Road 545 near Spencer County Road 1350N was 25-year-old Hunter Greulich, of Evanston, according to the Spencer County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say the crash involved a northbound 2008 Pontiac passenger car and a southbound 1999 Ford truck.

An investigation determined the Pontiac left the highway, struck a ditch and entered back onto the roadway. The driver of the Ford truck, John Korresell, of Cannelton, was unable to avoid striking the car in the roadway, according to the sheriff’s office.

Jacob Ninke, Grandview, and Derek Mulzer, Evanston, who were also occupants in the car, were flown by helicopter ambulances to an area hospital, according to police.

Korresell was transported by vehicle to an area hospital.

The sheriff’s office said there was no information available on patient conditions and the investigation into the accident is continuing.

The Santa Claus Police Department, Indiana State Police, St. Meinrad Volunteer Fire Department, New Boston Volunteer Fire Department, Spencer County Emergency Medical Services, Stat Flight and Air Evac ambulance services and the Spencer County Coroner’s Office assisted.

St. Meinrad Fire Chief Tom Kloeck said his department responded with four trucks and 16 firefighters.
