TELL CITY — An unrestrained FedEx employee’s fall from a moving delivery truck Monday afternoon in the Tell City area resulted in her death.
Debra J. Harris, 54, of 8307 E. Pike County Road 300S, Velpen, was flown from the accident scene on Leopold Road east of Lavender Road after the 1:38 p.m. accident and was pronounced dead after she arrived at Perry County Memorial Hospital, according to Indiana State Police.
Police said Joseph W. Englebrecht, 30, of Evansville, driving the 2000 International FedEx Ground delivery truck. Harris was riding unrestrained in the right front area of the vehicle, police said.
Englebrecht and Harris had just made a delivery and were traveling west on Leopold Road en route to make other deliveries when Harris fell out of the truck as it rounded a curve, police said.
Englebrecht was not injured and there was no damage to the vehicle, police said.
Police said Harris should have been restrained in the vehicle. No citations were issued.
An Indiana conservation officer and the Perry County Coroner’s Office and Fire and Rescue assisted.
