Investigation into accident that killed 2 workers on I-69 expected to take several weeks

INDIANAPOLIS — A Fortville man who caused an accident that killed two construction workers early Friday could face criminal charges.

Jordan Stafford, 22, was driving his pickup truck southbound on Interstate 69 at about 5:45 a.m. when he crashed into a large arrow board intended to move traffic out of the lane.

Two construction workers, Kenneth Duerson Jr., 49, of Indianapolis and Coty Demoss, 24, of Noblesville, were also struck by Stafford’s vehicle. They were standing alongside the road and were just about to move the arrow board to reopen the lane after overnight paving.
