A head-on crash just outside of Hatfield sent both drivers to an Evansville hospital in critical condition.

Master Trooper Randy Neighbors reports that at approximately 7:30 A.M., Colton W. Claspell, 19, Newburgh, was traveling eastbound on State Road 66, just east of Hatfield.

Both were airlifted to St. Mary’s hospital.


After passing County Road 800 West, for reasons unknown at this time, Claspell drove his tan 2001 Chevrolet Blazer across the westbound lane, struck two mailboxes, and drove along a corn field before driving head-on into a silver 2012 Dodge Caravan, driven by William M. Boehman, 66, Maceo, KY.

Impact from the crash pushed Boehman’s Dodge into a driveway on the south side of the roadway and caused Claspell’s Chevrolet to come to rest on its driver’s side.

Claspell and Boehman were both airlifted from the scene and taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville with critical injuries. Both vehicles were total losses.

This crash remains under investigation. The Indiana State Police was assisted at the scene by the Spencer County Sheriff’s Department, Luce Township Fire Department, Spencer County EMS, and St. Mary’s Hospital.
