Evansville Man Wanted Following Alleged Hit and Run

Jacob Higgins is wanted after allegedly running over two people with his car.

Authorities are looking for a man following and alleged hit and run. 

Around 2 this morning, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Show-Me’s West on Pearl Drive in reference to the Hit & Run accident.

As deputies arrived, they found two subjects laying in the east bound lane of Pearl Dr. The victims, identified as Alexander Marshall and Daniel Jordan, were transported to Deaconess Hospital.

Marshall suffered multiple, serious injuries while Jordan was treated and released with minor injuries.

According to witnesses, the suspect, Jacob Lacy Higgins and two other subjects arrived at Show Me’s to meet some friends. Higgins was driving an older model white Camaro with t-tops.

Shortly after their arrival, a dark colored mini-van arrived with several subjects, including Marshall and Jordan. Witnesses stated the subjects engaged in a verbal argument with Higgins and his companions which led into a physical fight. 

Witnesses stated the fight spilled-over to the AMC Theater parking lot across the street and subjects from the mini-van started throwing large rocks into the windshield of Higgins’s Camaro. Witnesses stated an unidentified male wearing a yellow shirt pulled a handgun and pointed it at Higgins.

Witnesses stated Higgins then drove his Camaro at a high rate of speed and struck Jordan and Marshall. Marshall was then dragged under Higgins’s car for over a quarter of a mile.

Sheriff’s detectives have obtained an arrest warrant charging Higgins with Attempted Murder Class A Felony, Criminal Recklessness Class D Felony and Hit and Run Class D Felony.

His whereabouts are currently unknown. Anyone with information concerning this incident should contact Det. Randy Chapman at (812) 421-6342. If you have information regarding the whereabouts of Higgins, please call (812) 421-6201 or dial 911.
