WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) - The name of the man killed when a car hit his moped has been released.
The Warrick County Coroner's Office says the victim has been identified as 34-year-old Jesse Lechner, of Chandler.
The wreck happened just after 11 Monday night on Highway 62 just outside Chandler.
Chandler police tell us Lechner was driving a moped driving east on 62 when a car, driven by 18-year-old Bridget Lafferty, of Chandler, hit him from behind. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
State police were called in to do a scene reconstruction, and, according to the coroner's office, alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash.
We're told Lafferty was taken to the hospital for blood testing and has since been detained by law enforcement.
