HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) The driver of a car was killed Monday afternoon after police said the vehicle ran a stop sign and was hit by an oncoming semi just east of Warren.
Police and medics were called around 2 p.m. to the intersection of S.R. 3 and C.R. 800 South on a report of a crash there. Investigators said a passenger vehicle, driven by Hellen Snow, 68, was headed westbound on S.R. 3 and disregarded the stop sign on C.R. 800 South. She drove into the path of a southbound semi tractor-trailer.
The semi's driver, Ronald Hite of rural Huntington, could not stop his rig and collided with the passenger side of the car. He was not hurt.
Snow, who was not restrained, was partially thrown from the vehicle due to the passenger side impact. The coroner said she might have survived had she been wearing a seat belt.
