Woman killed Saturday in I-74 accident

 A 28 year old woman from Vevay, Indiana was killed Saturday morning in a single vehicle roll-over crash along I-74 in Shelby County.


At 10:45 a.m. emergency crews were called to I-74 westbound near the 107 mile marker for a single vehicle crash. Callers were reporting one person had been ejected from the car and another was trapped inside. When first responders arrived on scene they found a female outside of the vehicle unresponsive and not breathing. Despite life saving efforts, Samantha Boyer of Vevay was pronounced deceased on the scene. A male passenger was entrapped and had to be extricated by the fire department and was later transported to Methodist Hospital in critical condition.


Investigators have preliminarly determined a 2008 Toyota, driven by Boyer, ran off the side of I-74, came back across the westbound lanes and went off the right side of the road.  It then rolled several times and came to rest on a side road.  Boyer was not wearing a seatbelt was was ejected from the vehicle. At this time troopers do not know what caused the vehicle to run off the road. 


Alcohol is not suspected however standard procedure with all fatal crashes requires a blood test for impairmentt.  Those results are pending.
