A fatal crash Sunday afternoon on I-65 in Scott County claimed the life of a Greenwood man.
Indiana State Police in Sellersburg says around 5 p.m., a car driven by 19-year-old Natalie K. Bomar, of Mt. Washington, KY, was going south on I-65 near mile marker 25 when for an unknown reason she went into the median on the east side of the road crossing through the cable barriers into the northbound lanes of the interstate. When she entered the northbound lanes, she struck a pickup truck pulling an enclosed trailer. When Bomar's car struck the pickup, the truck and trailer went off the east side of the interstate and burst into flames.
Officials say some Good Samaritans were able to pull 9-year-old Andrew Godsave and his grandmother, 62-year-old Sandra Godsave, of Greenwood, from the burning truck, but were unable to pull the driver, 62-year-old Dennis Godsave of Greenwood, who was consumed by the fire.
Bomar and Sandra Godsave were taken to University Hospital in Louisville. Andrew Godsave was taken to the Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville. All three individuals sustained serious injuries. It is unknown if seat belts were in use.
Indiana State Police Crash Reconstructionists have assumed the lead role in this crash investigation.The Clark and Scott County Sheriff's Departments, Scott County E.M.S., Scottsburg City Fire Department and Scott County Coroner's Office assisted at the scene.
