Two Killed When Pickup Strikes Bicycle At 2 a.m.

A Seymour teen was killed and another later died of injuries sustained in a crash on U.S. 31 early Sunday morning.
According to police, around 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning 17-year-old Todd Schurman and 17-year-old Zach Grubb, both of Seymour, were riding double on a bicycle southbound on U.S. 31 approximately one half mile south of U.S. 50. The teens were struck by a 1999 Dodge Dakota pickup truck driven by 23-year-old Christopher Hall of Crothersville. Hall was also southbound on U.S. 31 when he struck the bicycle, which investigators believe was in the middle of the southbound lane, according to Indiana State Police Trooper Justin Butler.
Schurman was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jackson County Coroner’s Office. Grubb was transported to Schneck Memorial Hospital in Seymour then later transferred via PHI Air Ambulance to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis where he died around 10 a.m. Monday from severe head trauma, police said. Hall was uninjured.
Police do not suspect drugs or alcohol to be a factor in the crash, Butler reported.
The crash is still under investigation.
