VERSAILLES, Ind. — May 24, 2024

A single-vehicle crash on I-65 in southern Jackson County, Indiana, Friday morning claimed the life of a Georgia man and sent two passengers to Indianapolis-area hospitals with serious injuries, according to Indiana State Police.

The crash occurred around 10:25 a.m. on May 24, 2024, near the 43-mile marker, approximately halfway between Seymour and Crothersville, Indiana. Investigators from the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post reported that a 2008 Nissan pickup truck, driven by Jose Uribe, 53, of Winder, Georgia, was traveling northbound when it veered off the east side of the roadway. The vehicle then re-entered the road and overturned, coming to rest in the northbound lanes.

Jose Uribe sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jackson County Coroner’s Office. A passenger in the vehicle, Carmen Uribe, 53, was airlifted to an Indianapolis-area hospital with serious injuries. A 17-year-old female passenger was initially taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Indiana, before being flown to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, with toxicology results pending. Jose Uribe’s family has been notified.

The northbound lanes of I-65 were closed for approximately two hours for investigation and cleanup. The Indiana State Police was assisted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, Crothersville Police Department, Seymour Fire Department, Jackson County EMS, Jackson County Coroner’s Office, and Coomers Towing.
