NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. (AP) — Police in northern Indiana say a Pennsylvania man was killed and a family member critically injured when a pickup truck crossed a highway's centerline and crashed head-on into the family's minivan.
The Kosciusko (kahs-ee-AHS'-koh) County Sherriff's Department says a 5-year-old boy in the pickup truck also was taken to a hospital in critical condition after the crash Sunday on Indiana 13 in the town of North Webster.
The department says 39-year-old Jeremy Valentine of Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead at the scene. Thirty-eight-year-old Seana Valentine was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital in critical condition, while 9- and 7-year-old children suffered less serious injuries.
Witnesses tell WNDU-TV that the pickup truck was driving erratically before the crash. Bystanders helped pull two children from the truck after it burst into flames.
