A Greens Fork man has died from his injuries in a Wednesday morning (July 29) two-vehicle crash in Henry County.
Kyle Beckman, 34, of Greens Fork, had been airlifted to a hospital in Indianapolis after his Honda Accord was hit head-on by a Ford Explorer.
About 8:42 a.m., Henry County Dispatch received a call of a head-on collision on County Road 300 West, north of County Road 50 North. They arrived on the scene along with emergency medical personnel and requested Indiana State Police’s District 51 Crash Reconstruction Investigators.
The preliminary investigation by ISP Master Trooper Scott Keegan indicates that a silver Ford Explorer, driven by Stacie Boykin, 46, of New Castle, was northbound on County Road 300 West when her vehicle crested a hill left of center, according to a news release from Sgt. John Bowling.
The Explorer hit Beckman’s southbound Honda Accord head-on in the southbound lane, Bowling said.
Beckman was flown by medical helicopter from the scene to a hospital in Indianapolis with serious injuries. Shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, police announced Beckman’s death.
Boykin was taken by local EMS to Henry Community Health in New Castle with non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash remains under investigation, Bowling said.
Keegan was assisted at the scene by Master Troopers Coley McCutcheon and Michael Bradbury, as well as Trooper Mark Hanna; the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Henry County EMS and the Harrison Township Fire Department.
