A 72-year-old Seymour man was killed in Tuesday afternoon on I-65 near the Uniontown exit.

Shortly before 5:00 pm, the Indiana State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on I-65 southbound near the 40 mile marker that claimed the life of a Seymour man.

The initial investigation by Trooper Korry Clark, Indiana State Police-Versailles Crash Reconstruction Team, indicated that a 2005 Ford truck being driven by Randall F. Carr, age 72, Seymour,  was traveling southbound on I-65 near the 40 mile marker, just south of the Uniontown exit. 

For an unknown reason, Carr’s vehicle drove off the west side of the roadway.  Carr’s vehicle hit an embankment and rolled over before coming to rest in a field on the west side of I-65.

As a result of the collision, Carr sustained fatal injuries. 

He was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Jackson County Coroner’s Office.

Toxicology results are pending at this time.  The crash remains under investigation.

All lanes of I-65 remained open during the crash investigation and cleanup.

Randall Carr’s family has been notified.
