JASPER COUNTY | A woman found early Thursday on the southbound shoulder of Interstate 65 just south of Rensselaer has died as the result of her injuries.
Rachael Savanna Woods, 20, of South Bend, died Thursday after being airlifted to St. Vincent's Hospital in Indianapolis, according to Indiana State Police.
Police are continuing their plea to the public for clues to how Woods was injured.
Police said they went to the southbound shoulder of I-65 in Jasper County, about four miles south of the Rensselaer exit, at 4:31 a.m. Thursday after receiving a 911 call about an injured woman there. When officers arrived, they found a man trying to perform CPR on Woods.
State police said a white 2002 Buick traveling from Chicago to Indianapolis was in the area at the time. Police said the vehicle and its occupants may have stopped at various truck stops and rest areas on their trip from Chicago.
One of the occupants, Nathan Huey-Dingle, 30, of Chicago, was arrested and taken to the Jasper County Jail on an outstanding warrant.
Police are asking anyone with information about the occupants of the Buick or their actions while driving to contact Indiana State Police Detective Jennifer Richmond at (219) 696-6242.
