Brian Colbert Death – On Friday, the body of an Evansville man who had been missing for more than a month was discovered dead inside the wrecked vehicle he had been driving when it crashed and had been hidden from view under a bridge. On December 10, 2022, members of Brian Colbert’s family notified authorities that he was missing. Colbert was 47 years old. Because Colbert was last seen in the nearby town of Princeton, an investigation into his disappearance that was being conducted by the Evansville Police Department was turned over to the Indiana State Police.
An autopsy was performed
According to the state police, Colbert was employed at the Toyota Boshoku in Princeton. On December 9, he was spotted for the last time at the residence of a coworker in Princeton, and he was driving his maroon 2017 Toyota Avalon. The search for Colbert continued until the morning of Friday, January 20, 2023, when an ISP detective discovered Colbert’s car parked underneath a bridge with a man who matched Colbert’s description sitting inside. The body of Colbert was recognized by the Gibson County Coroner’s Office on Saturday, and an autopsy is still being performed.
Information from detectives
The findings have not yet been finalized. When Det. Toni Walden came across the vehicle, she was conducting a search along Old U.S. 41, which is located south of County Road 150 South. Investigators have a strong suspicion that Colbert was at the wheel on December 9 at night when he drove to the left of the center lane and went off the road on the east side of Old U.S. 41. His vehicle went careening down a steep slope, flipped over, and ended up in Pigeon Creek not far from the bridge. According to the detectives, it would have been impossible for anyone travelling on Old U.S. 41 to notice the vehicle. They also believe that the car moved under the bridge as the stream level rose as a result of recent precipitation, making it even more difficult to find.

Around 3:10 p.m. on December 24, according to the Highway Patrol, troopers were called to investigate a collision on Garden Valley Road close to the I-40 overpass.
According to the authorities, an Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight from 1999 was driving north on Garden Valley Road when it crossed the centerline, went off the road to the left, hit a bridge railing, flipped over, and fell into the river. According to investigators, the crash occurred on December 22 rather than earlier that day. Sequoia Chamon Cotton, the Oldsmobile’s driver, was declared dead on the spot.
