Last night, at approximately 10:00 pm, the Indiana State Police responded to a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle on Sunnyside Avenue near Woodlawn Avenue which resulted in the death of a Lawrenceburg, Indiana man.
According to the initial investigation by the Indiana State Police Crash Reconstruction Team, Jason C. Boone, age 34, Lawrenceburg, Indiana was walking in the middle of the eastbound lane of Sunnyside Avenue when he was struck by an eastbound 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt being driven by Christopher M. Pyles, age 29, Aurora, Indiana. Boone was then struck by a westbound 2011 Nissan Sentra being driven by a seventeen year old female from Dillsboro, Indiana.
Boone sustained massive injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Dearborn County Coroner’s Office. Neither Pyles nor the seventeen year old juvenile were injured in the crash.
Per state law, both Pyles and the juvenile submitted to blood tests although alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. It is unknown why Boone was walking in the middle of the road in that area.
The Boone family has been notified. The investigation is ongoing.
Trp. Korry Clark, Indiana State Police Crash Reconstruction Team, was assisted by the Aurora Police Department, Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department, Dearborn County Coroner’s Office, and Aurora Fire Department.
