FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. (WDRB) -- A fiery crash on Indiana State Road 111 near Horseshoe Casino in Floyd County killed four people and injured one person early Monday.
Police say a Yellow Cab headed southbound burst into flames after colliding with a Cadillac headed northbound on a dark stretch of State Road 111 near Seven Mile Lane shortly after midnight.
Floyd County Sheriff's Department says three passengers in the cab died at the scene. The driver of the Cadillac died on the way to the hospital.
The Floyd County Coroner has confirmed that the three passengers in the cab were 31-year-old Michael Roby, 39-year-old Tara Hirsekorn and 23-year-old Laura Weigard. The coroner says it's likely that all three died of smoke inhalation.
The Jefferson County Coroner says the driver of the Cadillac was 60-year-old Thomas Stinson Jr. He was pronounced dead from his injuries at University Hospital just after 1:00 Monday morning.
Police say it appears the cab driver went off the roadway, then overcorrected and veered into the northbound lanes.
The cab driver was the only survivor. He was flown to University Hospital in Louisville. His condition was not immediately available, but officials on the scene said he was conscious and speaking when he was taken away.
"It's a pretty traumatic scene here," said Floyd County Sheriff Darrell Mills.
Mills says the cab "was fully engulfed in flames upon my officers arriving here. The impact was quite severe. The speed limit here is 55, so the vehicles' impact, even at the speed limit, is going to be around 110 miles an hour."
S.R. 111 has been the scene of several crashes in the past. Sheriff Mills says, "The severity of this ends up being in that the speed limit is 55 through here. It's a flat surface for the most part, that's very straight, and a lot of misjudging and sometimes impairment -- we're not far enough along in our investigation to know if there's any impairment at this point."
The road was closed for several hours as accident reconstruction teams worked the scene. It reopened for traffic just before 6 a.m.
