Indiana State Police are investigating a deadly crash that closed part of I-64 in Posey County Friday night.

ISP says that Whitney Steverson, age 32 of Evansville, was driving a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup truck eastbound when she swerved into the passing lane and toward the median to avoid rear-ending another vehicle.

The accident report says she attempted to steer away from the median but overcorrected. Her vehicle crossed both eastbound lanes, left the roadway on the south side, rolled, and came to rest its side.

Steverson was pronounced dead at the scene by the Posey County Coroner. Steverson's five children were injured. Four of the children were taken to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries. One was transported to Riley Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of serious injuries.

According to dispatch, that crash happened near the 3 mile marker in the eastbound lanes near Griffin, Indiana.
