ROANOKE, Ind. (WANE) – A man was killed and multiple people were injured following a crash north of Roanoke Monday morning, according to the Huntington County Coroner’s Office (HCCO).
At approximately 10:40 a.m., authorities responded to a crash at the intersection of U.S. 24 and State Road 114 on reports of a three-vehicle crash.
When authorities arrived, they discovered the male driver of a 2008 Buick Lucerne dead in the driver’s seat. Tuesday morning, the HCCO identified the man as Robert. L. Taylor, 81, of Wabash.
Medical personnel transported a female passenger who was also in the vehicle to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to the HCCO. She has been identified as Gwendolyn S. Taylor, 59, also of Wabash, and the HCCO identified Gwendolyn as Robert’s daughter.
Mark A. Floyd, the driver of a Toyota Tundra pickup truck involved in the crash, was transported to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The HCCO reported no injuries came from the third vehicle, a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, that contained the driver, Mallory E. Myers, an adult female passenger and two children.
According to the HCCO, witnesses reported that the Buick and Chevrolet vehicles were stopped at a stop light when the truck driven by Floyd rear-ended the Buick, which caused the Buick to crash into the Chevrolet vehicle.
The impact of the crash pushed all three vehicles into the intersection, authorities said.
The crash is still under investigation.
