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.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
