According to a press statement that was issued by the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office shortly after the incident took place, responding deputies discovered Jochum’s Nissan Titan pickup truck jammed up against a tree on the east side of the lane. The statement was made public shortly after the incident took place. It was speculated that Jochum was trapped within the truck and powerless to free himself from its confines. This option was at the focus of the speculation. The following is what was stated, as stated in the notification, which is as follows: “Both the Perry Township Police Department and the Perry Township Fire Department exhibited extraordinary bravery during their attempts to save the victim’s life, but ultimately, their efforts were not successful.
Despite their valiant efforts, the victim did not survive. It was discovered that Jochum had passed away while the investigators were still present at the site. This came as a shock to everyone involved.” The deputies were of the opinion that the vehicle had been moving “at a high rate of speed” previous to it veering off the side of the road, crashing with a power pole, and coming to a rest against the tree. This was the consensus of the investigators. The information that was provided by the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office indicates that the inquiry into the fatal accident has not resulted in the creation of any hypotheses or conclusions as of yet.
