A two vehicle accident that forced the closure of the both the east and westbound lanes of the Toll Road Tuesday morning claimed the life of an Ohio woman and injured two men in another car.
According to the Indiana State Police, emergency crews were called to the 115 mile marker in LaGrange County just before 10 a.m. for a two-vehicle crash with injuries.
A preliminary investigation determined a car driven by Marie L. Besancon, 66, of Stryker, Ohio was driving west when for unknown reasons she went across the center median and into the eastbound lanes when her car struck another car.
Besancon was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver and a passenger in the other car were taken to a hospital in South Bend for treatment. Police did not know their conditions.
