Motorist identified in fatal crash on Ind. 62

Four others hospitalized in Tuesday wreck

CHARLESTOWN — A fiery, three-vehicle collision on Ind. 62 near Charlestown State Park Tuesday afternoon killed a man and hospitalized four others, including a child.

Andrew Elliott, 29, Charlestown, died at the scene, said Clark County Sheriff's Lt.

Randy Burton, after colliding with two pick-up trucks traveling the opposite direction on

Ind. 62 just west of Decker Lane about 5 p.m.

Burton said Elliott "for unknown reasons" lost control of a Dodge Dakota, which crossed

the roadway's center line and first struck a Ford F-150 driven by David Bringham, 52,

Clarksville. Both Elliott and Bringham were the only occupants in the vehicles.

Bringham was later taken to U of L Hospital for "serious injuries," Burton reported.

After colliding with Bringham's vehicle, the Dakota hit a Chevrolet 2500 driven

by Dale Nevil and also occupied by a woman and a child. All three occupants were taken to Floyd Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Burton said it was unclear if the vehicles driven by Nevil and Bringham made contact

with one another during the accident.

Elliott was ejected from the Dakota truck, which came to rest on top of him and caught fire, Burton said.
