ISP: Man killed in Harrison Co. crash was wanted in double homicide investigation
CORYDON, Ind. (WAVE) - Indiana State Police say a person killed in a crash this morning in Harrison County was wanted in a double homicide investigation.
The crash happened around 6 a.m. on State Road 135 at the Quarry Road intersection. According to Sgt. Carey Huls of the ISP Sellersburg post, the vehicle was spotted by an ISP trooper as one possibly connected to a double murder in Evansville that happened Thursday night.
When the driver saw the trooper, Huls said the vehicle sped off north on SR 135 with the trooper behind him. The fleeing vehicle left the roadway, went airborne after hitting a driveway and struck a utility pole.
The driver, who was later identified as Samuel Aaron Robb, 30, was the only occupant of the car.
“The crash investigation is ongoing, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning,” Huls said in a statement. “Further information on the actual cause of death is expected to be released following the autopsy and this news release will be updated pending the official autopsy report.”
State Road 135 is closed in both directions while the investigation takes place.
