The Kentucky State Police has identified the victim of Sunday's deadly crash on the Audubon Parkway in Henderson County.

38-year-old Norman A. Hudson of Rockport, Indiana, was pronounced dead at the scene of Sunday's crash.

Preliminary investigation indicated that Hudson was traveling east in the westbound lanes of the Audubon Parkway when he sideswiped a Nissan Sentra, only to then crash into a Chevrolet Malibu head-on, according to KSP.

KSP says Hudson then crashed into a Ford Ranger and a Dodge RAM truck before his own vehicle became airborne, ejecting him in the process.

According to KSP, Hudson wasn't using his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Three other people involved in the crash were taken to Deaconess in Evansville by ambulance, and another driver was flown to Deaconess with serious injuries. Their current conditions are unknown at this time.

The Audubon Parkway was closed for nearly five hours as KSP reconstructed the crash.

The investigation remains ongoing at this time.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
