State Police in Indiana say a Missouri man was killed in a hit & run crash this (Friday) morning on I-65 in Jasper County. 58-year-old Mark Tobiasz of St. Charles, MO was identified as the victim. He was found along the shoulder, near the State Road 114/Rensselaer exit.
The incident happened around 5:30 am at mile-marker 208. Police said they received a call of someone walking along I-65. But before troopers could arrive, they received two more calls of someone on the ground beside the interstate.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jasper County Coroner's Office.
Troopers also found an abandoned vehicle nearby that belonged to the victim. It appeared he ran out of gas. State police believe, based off parts recovered at the scene, that a Kenworth or Freightliner semi hit Tobiasz.
