DAVIESS CO., Ind. - Indiana State Police have released information on a horrific traffic accident Wednesday that involved a car upside down in a watery ditch, aflame, and in which the driver drowned.

Yesterday evening (May 15, 2019), Indiana State Troopers from the Jasper District investigated the single vehicle fatal crash, which occurred on I-69 near the 68 mile-marker. 

,Preliminary investigation efforts suggest Heather Niemeier, 43, Evansville was traveling northbound when she lost control of her vehicle, struck a guardrail and ultimately came to rest upside down in the median area, in a body of water, up against a bridge pillar. 

Niemeier was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Daviess County Coroners Office. 

Multiple Indiana State Police Accident Reconstructionists spent several hours collecting evidence to help piece together the events that lead up to this tragic accident.  

Death notifications were made earlier this morning by the Daviess County Corners Office. An autopsy was also completed this morning and it was determined that Niemeier's cause of death was drowning, secondary to the violent initial impact of the crash. Toxicology results are pending. 

The crash is still under investigation by the Indiana State Police. 

Assisting Agencies: Daviess County Coroners Office, Daviess Co Sheriffs Department, Local Fire & EMS.
