(Knox, IN) - An arrest has been made in connection with a fatal hit-and-run accident in Starke County. Travis Lynch, 38, of LaCrosse, is being held in the Starke County Jail on a Level 4 felony charge of Leaving the Scene of a Fatality Accident.
According to authorities, Lynch was traveling U.S 421 in San Pierre on the night of March 14 when he came upon 35-year old Sherman Berry, who was allegedly in the roadway. It appears Lynch did not have enough time to avoid the collision, perhaps, and struck the man with the front end of his truck.
Lynch is accused of fleeing the scene in his vehicle, later recovered from Paul’s Auto Yard in Westville.
