Indiana State Police Arrest Hit and Run Suspect

Brittany Bauman
Gibson County Sheriff's Department

A Mount Vernon woman has turned herself in to authorities in connection to the April 25 hit and run incident that left a 23-year-old Princeton man seriously injured.

Indiana State Police say they arrested 24-year-old Brittany Bauman, of Mount Vernon Friday afternoon after she turned herself in to Gibson County Police.

Authorities say that sometime after midnight on April 25, Bauman’s vehicle left the road while travelling northbound on US HWY 41 and hit Aaron Henry who was riding his bicycle, causing him to be thrown in the vehicle’s windshield.

Bauman allegedly dragged the bicycle northbound before stopping near Coalmine Road to dislodge it from underneath her vehicle.

According to police, Bauman then continued to travel north on HWY 41 to Princeton without contacting police about the accident, which is required by law.

Bauman purportedly took her damaged vehicle to an Evansville body shop to have it repaired after filing a report with the Posey County Sheriff’s Department that she had hit a deer.

Indiana State Police says that nearly 21 hours later, Bauman contacted them about the hit and run.

An investigation led to the Gibson County Prosecutor’s Office issuing a felony warrant earlier today for Bauman’s arrest.

She has been released on a $750 cash bond.
