HANCOCK COUNTY — A truck driver is dead after a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 70 near Greenfield, officials said.

It happened just after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the westbound lanes approaching State Road 109, according to Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine

Crash investigators determined the driver, 54-year-old Scott Brandenburg, of Clarksville, was driving in the westbound lanes when he, for an unknown reason, drove across the median into the eastbound lanes, back across the median, across the westbound lanes and into the ditch, Perrine said.

A passenger in the sleeper berth of the semi-truck at the time of the crash was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, Perrine said.
