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.
Sheriff Brett Kruse said a tow truck was attempting to turn around at the scene to retrieve a disabled vehicle when a car driven by Alcantar-Ramirez rear-ended the wrecker.
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.
