MORGAN COUNTY — A Camby man is dead after a crash Friday morning on Interstate 70 in Morgan County, according to the sheriff.

Morgan County Sheriff Rich Myers said Christopher Edumaniehulewu was killed in the crash near the 55-mile marker, which is near State Road 39.

Through the investigation, the sheriff's office learned Edumaniehulewu was seen backing up and then stopping in the left lane of the interstate before the crash, Myers said in a press release. A 39-year-old, of Noblesville, turned into the left lane to pass a box truck when they crashed into Edumaniehulewu's stopped SUV.

Edumaniehulewu's brother, who was in the front passenger of the SUV, wasn't injured, Myers said.

The driver of the other SUV involved was taken to Putnam County Hospital for a chemical test and non-life-threatening injuries, Myers said. A chemical test is required under state law in all serious crashes.

Indiana State Police troopers and Hendricks County Sheriff's Office deputies were assisting at the scene.
