Indiana State Police are investigating a deadly accident in Warrick County that has killed one person.

Three vehicles were involved in the accident that happened around 7:30 Tuesday morning at the intersection of S.R. 62 and Epworth Road.

ISP identified the victim of the crash as 70-year-old Sheila Shofstall of Chandler, Indiana.

According to ISP, Shofstall was stopped on SR 62 behind a tractor-trailer. A Ford pickup truck failed to notice traffic was stopped and struck Shofstall's vehicle from behind, pushing it forward into the rear of the tractor-trailer.

The driver of the Ford pickup truck and the driver of the tractor-trailer were transported to area hospitals where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The eastbound lanes of SR 62 between I-69 and Epworth Road were closed for approximately 3 ½ hours while troopers investigated the crash.

ISP indicates dense fog was in the area could have contributed to the crash, as visibility was limited.

The investigation is ongoing.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
