Extremely high rate of speed

Sunday afternoon shortly after 6:00 pm, A Scott County Sheriff’s Deputy was in his driveway located just off of U.S. #31 South of Scottsburg. He was  just starting his work shift when a motorcycle passed his residence going South at an extremely high rate of speed. The deputy pulled out of his driveway and attempted to catch up to the motorcycle. As the motorcycle went into a curve approximately a quarter of a mile North of Edrington Road, it crossed the center line striking a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the passenger side front. The driver of the motorcycle, Dmytri Samuel Weddington, 25, from Scottsburg, IN, was thrown from the vehicle, a 1997 Yamaha. Dmytri Samuel Weddington was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

The driver of the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, David Cunningham, 42 years of age, and his front seat passenger, Kristine Cunningham, 41 years of age, both from Scottsburg, IN, were slightly injured and transported to the Scott County Hospital by Scott County E.M.S..

 

This investigation is continuing. Both occupants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee were wearing seat belts.
