A crash took the life of a 46-year-old man in Louisville last month. According to police, the accident happened around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, 2013 on Interstate 64, just east of the Watterson Expressway. 

It is alleged that the driver of a Ford Explorer was rear ended by the driver of a Suzuki Forenza. The driver of the Explorer reportedly got out of his car at the accident scene to assess the damage to his vehicle. It was while he was between the Explorer and the Suzuki that a third vehicle, a Ford F-250, allegedly hit the Suzuki and pinned the Explorer driver between his vehicle and the Suzuki. 

The driver of the Explorer, who has been identified as 46-year-old Michael Shea of Greenwood, Indiana, was taken to University Hospital where he allegedly died of blunt force wounds shortly after 2 p.m. on May 19. There were no reports of serious injuries to the driver of the Suzuki or the Ford F-250 immediately following this fatal Louisville crash.

Mr. Shea served in the United States Air Force in the 1980s and had worked as a UPS pilot for the last thirteen years. He was a graduate of Indiana State University. Mr. Shea is survived by his parents, his stepmother, his siblings, nieces, and nephews. He was laid to rest on Saturday, May 25, 2013.
