    Indiana State Police (ISP) arrested a truck driver following a fatal crash on Monday afternoon.

    The crash happened at 4:45 p.m. on February 8 on I-69 in Daviess County, Indiana.

    ISP says that 38 year old truck driver Allen C. Weldy was driving a truck hauling a flatbed trailer southbound on I-69 when he missed his turn.

    “Weldy decided that instead of going to the next exit he would make a U-turn at the crossover near the 84-mile marker. Weldy pulled into the crossover and stopped for a moment. His trailer was completely blocking the passing lane and partially in the driving lane,” ISP said in a news release.

    Fifty-two year old motorist Susan S. Yoo was driving an SUV south on I-69 behind Weldy’s truck. Troopers believe that Yoo attempted to avoid the crash but was unable to do so, crashing into the trailer “in a heavily over lapping same direction sideswipe.”

    The SUV left the roadway, went down an embankment, and came to a stop in a ditch.

    Yoo was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Troopers say that a blood test showed that Weldy had Methamphetamines in his system.

    Weldy was booked into the Daviess County Jail. Charges are pending against him.

    The crash remains under investigation.

    I looked at the top. I don't scan all the way down, since it was very recent. There will always be overlap, and some reword the accident. I don't get paid for this you know, just trying to help.

    Stereotyping much (double stereotyping -LOL)? You're like the media we have now - distracting from the real cause of events (accident caused by meth addicted driver making an illegal u-turn on a highway):):D:).

    So, you’re blaming this on the Asian driver?
