Coroner: Danville man's death in Brownsburg pond due to accidental drowning following crash

Officials confirm a man from Danville was pulled from a car submerged in water.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. — Officials in Brownsburg confirm they're investigating after a Danville man was pulled from a car submerged in a retention pond on March 29 near Interstate 74 and Hendricks County 900 East.

The Hendricks County Coroner's Office identified him as 56-year-old Kevin Wayne Turner.

On April 21, the coroner's office said Turner died of an accidental drowning, and that he suffered a medical emergency which caused him to lose consciousness and the car to crash into the pond.

The vehicle went into water behind a building in the 500 block of Pitt Road. 

Investigators said they believe Turner's two-door, red 1993 Honda Civic left the south side of Interstate 74 for an unknown reason around 3 p.m. and went into the median, where it struck a cable barrier. Just east of the 56th Street bridge, the vehicle crossed both lanes of traffic and went through a fence into the pond on the north side of the interstate.

First responders entered the water and pulled Turner from the car, according the Brownsburg Police incident report. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

If you have information about the crash, contact Brownsburg Police Department Sgt. Doug Abshire at 317-852-1109 (ext. 2131) or by email at dabshire@brownsburgpolice.org.
