Names released of Army personnel involved in military vehicle accident

Posted: Updated:

A military vehicle carrying three Army personnel was involved in an accident that shut down the Western Kentucky Parkway in Ohio County.

One westbound lane of the Western Kentucky Parkway remained closed around mile marker 81, near the Natcher Parkway.

Ohio County deputies tell 14 News that 26-year-old, Andrew Bechtle, operating a military vehicle, was traveling eastbound when witnesses said the vehicle blew a tire, crossed over into the westbound lanes, and then rolled at least once.

The sheriff's office says that Bechtle was taken by helicopter to St. Mary's in Evansville and is in critical condition.

The passengers of the vehicle, 34-year-old, Bedijoel Bley, and 23-year-old, Nathan Pearson, were transported to local hospitals.
