An Indiana State Police veteran died over the weekend in a head-on crash on Interstate 70 in Wayne County. Motor Vehicle Inspector Robert Pitcher was headed westbound Sunday when he lost control of his pickup and hit the guardrail. Pitcher then crossed the median and entered oncoming traffic, where he slammed into a semitrailer head-on. Pitcher was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi was airlifted to Wishard Hospital with severe burns. Pitcher worked out of the Pendleton post for 22 years.
