GREENWOOD, Ind. — Johnson County deputies are investigating a deadly crash that happened Monday morning in Greenwood.
According to Johnson County Sheriff Duane Burgess, a box truck was stopped to make a delivery for Home Depot at a home in the 3000 block of Olive Branch Road, near State Road 135, shortly after 9 a.m.
Burgess told 13News that three people were at the back of the box truck when a pickup truck, driven by a 63-year-old Greenwood man, rear-ended the parked truck.
Burgess said one delivery worker, identified as 22-year-old Alexander Colmenares Fernandez of Carmel, died at the scene after he was pinned between the two trucks.
Two other workers were also hit by the truck and knocked into the front yard.
According to a crash report, the two workers, ages 30 and 38, were quickly taken to Methodist Hospital with what appeared to be serious injuries.
The report said the 30-year-old worker had severe bleeding and the 38-year-old worker had head pain.
The pickup truck driver who hit the box truck told deputies the sun was in his eyes, causing him not to see the parked box truck.
Burgess said the driver of the pickup truck was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Deputies do not believe texting or substances caused the crash.
