  Autopsies performed on the three victims of Friday's triple-fatality accident on Interstate 164 revealed similar injuries to each, a Vanderburgh County deputy coroner said Sunday.

Sylvia Fischer, 17, of Owensville, Ind., William Dunn, 8, and his aunt, Jennifer Ross, 36, both of Gibson County, all suffered significant head injuries from extreme impact during the three-vehicle collision, according to Vanderburgh County Deputy Corner Shaun Madding. The accident occurred at about 6:15 p.m. between the Lloyd Expressway and Morgan Avenue.

The speed at impact remains unknown, as does the reason Fischer's minivan crossed the median from the northbound lane and struck the SUV carrying Dunn and Ross, which then caused the SUV to collide with a pickup truck. Judging from the nature of the injuries, there must have been a "devastating impact," Madding said.

Evansville Police Department spokeswoman Karen Kajmowicz said Sunday an accident reconstruction expert will spend the next two weeks to 60 days determining why Fischer's minivan crossed the median. If necessary, the expert will tear the minivan apart to see if a mechanical issue is the cause. A toxicology report done on Fischer is due in about three weeks.

Coroner Annie Groves said Saturday that it doesn't appear that Fischer was texting or using a cellphone as a cellphone was discovered in her purse at the scene.

Evansville police have not identified the survivors. The adult male driver of the SUV in which Dunn and Ross were riding was hospitalized in critical condition on Saturday. Groves identified him only as Ross' husband. Another passenger in the SUV, a 15-year-old female, also was hospitalized.

The adult male driver of a third vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The collision occurred at 6:15 p.m. Friday between the Lloyd Expressway and Morgan Avenue, prompting authorities to close the southbound lanes of I-164 for hours.
