Passers-by save 2 from burning truck at I-65 crash

SCOTTSBURG — State police say an SUV barreled across the Interstate 65 median in southern Indiana, running into a pickup truck in the opposite direction in a crash that killed a central Indiana man.

The crash Sunday near the Scott County caused the northbound pickup truck to go off the side of the highway and burst into flames.

Police say passers-by were able to pull 9-year-old Andrew Godsave and his grandmother, 62-year-old Sandra Godsave of Greenwood, from the burning truck. Sgt. Jerry Goodin says they weren’t able to rescue 62-year-old driver Dennis Godsave and he died at the scene about 25 miles north of Louisville.

Nineteen-year-old Natalie Bomar of Mount Washington, Ky., was driving the SUV. She and Andrew and Sandra Godsave were all taken to Louisville hospitals with serious injuries.
