Fatal Dune Buggy Crash

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says an 18-year-old girl died Monday night when the dune buggy she was riding in flipped over.

The accident happened on private property in the 12-hundred block of East Baseline Road.

Taylor Hess was ejected from the vehicle which landed on top of her.

Her father, who was at the residence at the time of the crash, freed her from the wreckage.

Hess later died at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville.

The driver of the dune buggy, Robert Duffy, is being treated for injuries at Deaconess.
