LYNNVILLE — Authorities say a Huntingburg man was killed in a Tuesday afternoon crash on I-64 near the Lynnville exit.
Pronounced dead at the scene of the 5:15 p.m. accident was Jonathan Alcantar-Ramirez, 21, Huntingburg.
The Warrick County Sheriff’s Department reported the accident occurred in the westbound lanes of I-64 at the 38.5-mile marker, just east of the Lynnville exit.

The crash closed the westbound lanes for about two hours, the sheriff said.
Additional details of the accident were not immediately available.
Indiana State Police accident reconstructionists assisted at the scene.
