|At approximately 11:30 this morning, Indiana State Police responded to a three vehicle crash involving a Gibson County Sheriff’s Deputy on SR 64 at C.R. 400 West.
Preliminary investigation revealed Gibson County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Hill, 52, was driving his department issued 2011 Ford Crown Vic westbound on SR 64 near C.R. 400 West. Hill was on routine patrol. Toni Ann Fisher, 57, of Grayville, IL, was following Hill in her 1990 Buick Century. Robert Hinshaw, 49, of Bicknell, was following Fisher and he was driving a 2014 Mack dump truck. Hill was in the process of turning south onto C.R. 400 West when the dump truck struck the rear of the Buick, which caused it to collide into the rear of Hill’s patrol car. After impact, Hill’s vehicle continued west for over 300 feet before coming to a final rest in the ditch on the north side of S.R. 64. The other two vehicles came to a final rest on S.R. 64. Fisher had to be extricated by Princeton Fire Department. Hill and Fisher were taken to Gibson General Hospital in Princeton and are currently being treated for non-life threatening injuries. Hinshaw was not injured. He was cited for speed too fast to avoid a collision. S.R. 64 was closed for approximately one-hour while troopers investigated the crash.
