Virginia Man Killed in Spencer Co. Crash

A crash in Spencer County Wednesday night claimed the life of a Virginia man.

Sabrina Felton, 56 of Roanoke, was driving eastbound on I-64 about three miles west of Ferdinand. Her passenger, 34-year-old Brandon Taylor of Roanoke passed away following the crash.

Felton was in the passing lane when authorities say 89-year-old Rueben Boswell of Henderson was going in the same lane as Felton heading the wrong way.

Authorities say Felton attempted to drive into the median to avoid the crash, but she was unable to avoid colliding with Boswell's vehicle.

Felton and Boswell were both sent to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville for non-life threatening injuries, according to authorities. Taylor had to be extricated from the vehicle Felton was driving. Taylor was flown by LifeFlight to St. Mary's Hospital where authorities say he died due to his injuries.

I-64 was closed for nearly four hours while troopers investigated the collision.
