EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A weekend car crash northeast of Evansville has led to a death investigation after a body was discovered at the scene and the driver fled in a stolen car.

The Warrick County coroner identified the victim as 30-year-old Beverly Helen Karns of Evansville. Authorities believe she died in Vanderburgh County.

Karns’ body was found Saturday afternoon after the crash on Indiana State Road 68. The Warrick County Sheriff’s Office says it has a suspect in custody but has not released the individual’s identity.

Sheriff Brett Kruse says the suspect led deputies on a chase into Dubois County and also shot a witness while fleeing the scene.
