(NORTH VERNON) - Sunday, shortly after 3 p.m., the Indiana State Police responded to a two vehicle crash on US 50 at State Route 750 that claimed the life of an eighteen year old North Vernon man.

The initial investigation by the Indiana State Police-Versailles Crash Reconstruction Team determined that a gray 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck being driven by 53-year-old Michael C. Furlong of Cynthiana, Kentucky was traveling westbound U.S. 50 at State Road 750.

Furlong's vehicle entered SR 750 into the path of a westbound red 1995 GMC being driven by 18-year-old Caleb M. Fish, of North Vernon. The vehicles collided in the middle of the intersection. Both vehicles then left the north side of U.S. 50 before coming to rest.

As a result of the collision, Fish sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jennings County Coroner's Office.

Furlong and a female passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash. They were both transported to St. Vincent-Jennings Hospital in North Vernon, for treatment of their injuries.

The Indiana State Police-Versailles Crash Reconstruction Team is continuing their investigation. They were assisted by the Jennings County Sheriff's Department, Jennings County EMS, Spencer Twp. Fire Department, Jennings County Coroner's Office, Seymour Mack, and Hampton's Wrecker Service.
