Jacob Jochum Obituary, Death – The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office has made public the identity of a man who was killed in a crash that included a single vehicle that occurred early on Sunday morning on Evansville’s West Side. The crash only involved one vehicle. In a press release that was distributed on Monday, Chief Deputy Coroner David Anson revealed that the driver was identified as Jacob Andrew Jochum, who was 20 years old. It was determined that Jochum was the one driving. According to Anson, Jochum was involved in an accident that occurred soon after 3:45 a.m. in the 5600 block of Upper Mount Vernon Road. Anson stated that Jochum sustained “multiple blunt force trauma injuries” as a result of the collision. Jochum could not recover from the injuries he sustained, and he died as a result.
The victim of the homicide that occurred on Judson Street has been identified, and the EPD is currently searching for a “person of interest.” According to a press release that was published by the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, deputies who went to the incident found Jochum’s Nissan Titan pickup truck jammed against a tree on the east side of the roadway. It was speculated that Jochum was trapped inside the truck and unable to free himself. “According to the announcement, both the Perry Township Police Department and the Perry Township Fire Department tried to save the victim’s life, but they were unable to do so. Despite their best efforts, the victim did not survive.
It was discovered that (Jochum) had passed away while investigators were still on the scene.” In addition, Mr. Crouch has announced that he will be running for governor of Indiana. This is the route that brought her to this moment in time. The deputies were under the impression that the vehicle had been moving “at a high rate of speed” previous to it swerving off the side of the lane, striking with a power pole, and coming to a rest against the tree. According to the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, there has not been a conclusion reached on the investigation into the fatal accident.
