HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — One woman is dead and another person injured after two vehicles crashed in Dallas Township, south of Andrews, Sunday afternoon.

According to the Huntington County Coroner, Claydine Wright, 65, of Hartford City was traveling east on Division Road in a Kia Rio.

Her vehicle collided with a Ford 150 pulling a 32-foot camper trailer driven by Nathan Dockter, 48, of North Manchester.

A passenger in Dockter’s vehicle was taken to a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The Huntington County Coroner’s Office has ruled Wright’s death accidental, caused by blunt force traumatic injuries. The crash is still under investigation.
