BROWNSBURG, Ind. (WISH) — A man was found dead Wednesday night in a car partially submerged in a pond along I-74, Brownsburg Fire Territory says.

He was identified as Kevin Turner, 56, says a news release issued Thursday night from Brownsburg Police Department.

A call was received shortly after 7:05 p.m. Wednesday about a red, two-door car in a pond along the 500 block of Pit Road, which is near the Hendricks County Road 600 North overpass for I-74.

Divers about 10 minutes later pulled a body from the red 1993 Honda Civic. No other people were found in the car.

Police investigators think Turner was westbound on I-74 between 2:45 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday when, for unknown reasons, his car left the south side of the interstate west of Ronald Reagan Parkway. The car went into a median, traveled along a median cable for about a quarter-mile, then crossed both lanes of the interstate before crashing through a fence and going into the pond.

Brownsburg police asked anyone with information to contact Sgt. Doug Abshire at 317-852-1109, Extension 2131, or
