Teenage Girl Dies In Three-Vehicle Crash In Hendricks County
BROWNSBURG, Ind. -- A girl died and at least two other people were hurt after a three-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon a few miles north of Brownsburg.
The crash happened on State Road 267 at about 4:15 p.m. at the intersection of County Road 1000 North.
Amanda Goings, a spokeswoman for Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office, said in a late Wednesday night email that two teenagers in a Mercury minivan were hurt in the crash and taken to an Indianapolis hospital. She said one of them died.
Jim Miller,with the Brownsburg Fire Territory, said the victim was a girl.
Goings said in an email the minivan was traveling east on County Road 1000 North and, according to a witness, did not stop at a stop sign at State Road 267. Instead, the minivan went into the intersection and was hit by a Chevy pickup. After the initial collision, the minivan and pickup moved through the intersection and hit another car.
The driver of the pickup, the only person in the truck, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The email also said the two occupants of the other car were not seriously hurt.
The fire territory spokesman had initially reported four people were hurt in the crash, and the sheriff’s spokeswoman reported the fatality and two other people injured.
Authorities on Wednesday did not provide names of the people in the crash.
