September 17, 2018

Two people died and three were hurt in a head-on crash in Huntington County on Sunday morning.

A driver and passenger in a 1998 Buick were eastbound on Ind. 16 when the car went off the south shoulder.

The driver tried to regain control but overcorrected, crossing the centerline and going off the north side of the road. The driver tried to correct again and slid into the path of an oncoming 2014 Chevrolet Silverado.

The driver and passenger of the Buick were declared dead at the scene by the Huntington County coroner’s office. Their identities were not made public pending notification of the family.

The driver of the Silverado, as well as a front-seat passenger and an 11-year-old in the rear, were taken to the hospital for their injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
