Troopers were dispatched to the intersection of Highway 30 East at County Road 150 in Union County at approximately 6:30 p.m. Upon arriving, it appeared Colby Pannell, 25, of New Albany, was traveling west on 30 in a 1996 Chevrolet pickup, when he apparently ran off the right side of the highway, struck a vehicle that was sitting at the intersection of CR 150/Highway 30 East, then overturned several times.

Pannell was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene from injuries sustained in the crash. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Both occupants in the other vehicle were uninjured.
