Police have identified the person involved with a Monday morning single vehicle roll over accident that saw the driver air lifted from Memorial Hospital.
21-year-old Devin Hass of Jasper was identified on Tuesday as the driver involved in the accident along the Jasper-Dubois road early Monday morning.
The Dubois County Sheriff Department says that after arriving at the scene they located Hass’ 2015 Dodge Challenger in a corn field.
Through an investigation, county deputies say the Dodge was traveling southbound approaching a curve. Deputies said that tire marks indicated the car, for an unknown reason, drove off the right side of the road.
After leaving the roadway the charger struck an embankment resulting in the car becoming airborne then flipping end over end several times before coming to a rest.
County Sheriff officers said the Charger traveled 430 feet from the time it left the roadway to final rest.
It is believed that Hass was unrestrained and thrown from the vehicle. Hass was located south of the vehicle in the cornfield, somewhat responsive, when first responders arrived on the scene and had suffered apparent internal and head injuries.
Hass was initially transported to Memorial Hospital and later transferred to St Vincent Hospital by air transport for his injuries.
During the investigation County Sheriff Deputies said they believe unsafe speed was the contributing factor in the crash.
Assisting the Dubois County Sheriff’s office at the scene were the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker.
