Pronounced deceased at the scene of the 10:50 a.m. crash at Daviess County roads 600E and 900N was 63-year-old Susan Hert of Odon, according to the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department.

The truck ran off the road and struck an embankment head on, then flipped onto its roof, according to police.

Hert was wearing a seat belt and alcohol and drugs were not believed to have been factors, according to the sheriff’s department.
