MEMPHIS, Ind. (WISH) — A man is dead after a crash in northern Clark County, Indiana, about an hour and a half south of Indianapolis and twenty minutes north of Louisville.

Indiana State Police from the Sellersburg and Versailles posts began investigating two separate crashes on I-65 southbound Monday morning, which happened 2 miles south of the Memphis Road exit.

Officers say that shortly after midnight Sunday, Tee’untra Moore, of Frankfort, was driving a Ford Fusion with a flat tire, driving below the speed limit with her hazards lights on, when she was hit by an unidentified driver of a black 2002 Honda Civic.

Moore’s vehicle went off the road and came to rest, while the other vehicle entered the median and stopped partially in the left lane of I-65 southbound, investigators say.

According to investigators, the unidentified driver of the vehicle exited the car to stand next to it when he was struck by a Cadillac Escalade driven by Martin Rodriguez of Greenwood. The unidentified driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both Moore and Rodriguez had multiple passengers in their vehicles, some of which received non-lethal injuries.

Investigators are working to determine the unidentified driver’s identity. Information discovered in the man’s vehicle by investigators says the man may have been 26 years old and had connections to the Indianapolis area.

Anyone with information on his possible identity is urged to call Trooper Tate Rohlfing at the Indiana State Police-Sellersburg Post at 812-246-5424.
