Evansville man dies in I-64 crash

An Evansville man died Friday night after a crash on Interstate 64 west of Corydon.
According to a crash report from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept., Jordan R. Berry, 24, was driving his 1997 Dodge Dakota west on I-64 when, for an unknown reason, the truck ran off the south side of the roadway and through the median at about 9:50 near the 101.5-mile marker.
The vehicle rolled, ejecting Berry and his passenger, John D. Beck, 24, also of Evansville, into the eastbound lanes. According to the crash report, neither man was wearing his seat belt.
The driver of an eastbound semi-tractor trailer, Michael Briscoe of Evansville, saw the truck heading west, through the median and flipping across the eastbound lanes of the interstate.
Briscoe told police he pulled his semi over and got out to check on the two men. He noted that the passenger was talking but was confused. Briscoe told police he thought the driver was deceased.
Further investigation showed that Berry had been run over by the semi-tractor trailer.
Berry was pronounced dead at the scene with trauma to his upper torso and head, according to police.
Beck was transported by ambulance to University Hospital in Louisville.
