CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Police have released new details on a deadly crash on Interstate 70 in Clay County.

Police say Daryl Duhrkoff of Michigan died in the crash.

They say it was a medical incident, and not the crash, killed him.

Authorities say Duhrkoff was driving on 70 when his passenger was not able to get his attention.

She told police he was acting normal and then had a blank stare.

That's when they say the car drifted off the road and hit the wood line.

First responders and passersbys tried to revive Duhrkoff.

The passenger was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

An autopsy is set for Friday.
