Friday morning at approximately 7:25 a.m., a Pensacola, Florida man was killed in a single vehicle crash on I-65 at the 230-mile marker. Preliminary investigation shows that a Ford Expedition, driven by 62 year old Francisca M. Brown, from Pensacola, FL was northbound on I-65 at the 230-mile marker. For unknown reasons, the vehicle left the right shoulder of the roadway and drove into the ditch embankment. The vehicle continued to travel in the grass up the overpass where it drove underneath the S.R. 10 bridge, striking the lower portion of the bridge causing severe damage to the roof. The Expedition continued down the hill and crossed the north bound lanes and came to a rest after striking the south bound cable barrier. A passenger in the vehicle sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash. Deceased is 64 Jerry L. Brown, 64, also of Pensacola, FL. Family has been notified. Mrs. Brown was transported to Franciscan Health in Crown Point for non-life-threatening injuries. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.
