BENTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Boswell Town Marshal died Sunday morning in a car crash. Kevin McCombs served his community as the Boswell Town Marshal, a Benton County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Deputy, and with Benton County EMS.

It happened just before 3:30 a.m. on State Road 352 near County Road 500 East. The Benton County Sheriff’s Department responded to the single-vehicle fatal crash and requested the help of Indiana State Police to investigate the crash.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Jonathan Fulfer found that McCombs was driving a 2018 Ram 2500 westbound on S.R. 352, approaching County Road 500 East. For an unknown reason, the Ram ran off the south side of the road, struck a utility pole, and came to stop in a field.

First responders extracted McCombs from the vehicle and began to render medical aid. Despite lifesaving efforts, McCombs succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. Notification to the family has been made.

McCombs was off-duty at the time of the crash and driving a personally owned vehicle. He was 34-years-old.

Trooper Fulfer was assisted on scene by Indiana State Police Crash Reconstruction Team, Benton County Sheriff’s Department, Fowler Police Department, Benton County Coroner’s Office, Oxford Fire Department, Benton County EMS, Tipmont REMC, Warren County REMC, NIPSCO, and Bennett’s Towing.
