Boggstown man killed in I-74 crash Monday

The man killed in an I-74 van and charter bus crash Monday afternoon was from Shelby County.

Jason Huber, 52, of Boggstown, was the driver of the van in the crash that closed down the eastbound lanes of the interstate for several hours Monday.

At 2 p.m.,  Indiana State troopers were requested to assist the Shelby County Sheriff's Office with a serious crash near the 112-mile marker. Huber was found unconscious and unresponsive in the van that struck the rear of the charter bus. Huber would be pronounced dead at the scene.

Nine of the passengers on the bus chose to go to the hospital for a check-out. None of those injuries were serious.

The preliminary investigation by Indiana State Police crash reconstructionists determined Huber struck the back of the charter bus that was stopped with traffic in the eastbound lanes.

Indiana State Police commercial vehicle inspectors were on scene to assist with the investigation, along with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, Indiana Department of Transportation, Shelby County Coroner Bradly Rund and the Shelbyville Fire Department.
