A four-year-old Bicknell boy died and another man was seriously injured in southwestern Indiana on the night of Saturday, September 17, when a sheriff’s deputy collided with a van.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the crash occurred in Vincennes, Indiana, when the Knox County deputy, who had his sirens and emergency lights activated, was pursuing a fleeing vehicle. The officer drove into an intersection without stopping at a stop sign and struck the left backside of the van.

The boy was not restrained in the rear of the van, and he died of head injuries incurred in the crash. A 34-year-old man in the back of the van was also seriously injured and taken to a hospital in Evansville.

The van’s driver, another child, and the deputy were each transported to a hospital in Vincennes for treatment.

The driver of the car that ran from police Saturday night was arrested on Monday for resisting law enforcement with a vehicle. The 35-year-old male is being held at the Knox County Jail.
