I-69 construction is creating conditions that have led to deaths, severe injuries and extreme damage to property and aquifers in Daviess and Greene Counties.
On October 10, 2011, three Daviess County citizens were killed when a truck, hauling gravel for I-69 construction, slammed into two disabled vans, killing the two occupants of the vans and a farmer who was assisting at the scene.
On October 31, 2011, four people were seriously hurt when two trucks collided head-on near the US-231 interchange that is under construction for I-69. A local resident confirmed that the accident occurred in the work zone for I-69. This site was the scene of another accident on 14 October, 2011.
