Thomas W. Hawkins, 22, of Hanson was a passenger in the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt. He was also ejected from the vehicle. Another passenger, Amber A. Harrison, 20, of Henderson was wearing a seatbelt. Both passengers were flown from the scene and taken to St. Mary's in Evansville, Ind.

Alcohol is a suspected factor in the collision, according to the report.

Trooper John Komar is continuing the investigation.

Hanson Volunteer Fire Department, Manitou Volunteer Fire Department, Sebree Volunteer Fire Department and Medical Center Ambulance Service assisted at the scene.
