DALEVILLE, IND. — Three people are dead and three are injured following a single-vehicle crash near Daleville, Ind.
According to Cpl. Tony Skinner with the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department, dispatchers received the first call about the crash just after 4 p.m. Sunday.
Minutes later, first responders arrived to find a severely damaged SUV off the roadway at County Road 600 West and State Road 67.
Skinner told Fox59 of the six people inside the SUV, three were completely ejected and two were trapped and required extrication. The driver, identified as Lisa Case, 46 of Anderson, was partially ejected.
Case, front seat passenger Kent Kalley, 46, and rear passenger Andrew Lackey, 12, both of Yorktown, died at the scene.
Medical helicopters transported Savanna Kalley, Trace Joiner, and Jessica DeLong, all 13, to Indianapolis hospitals. Skinner said they were in stable condition Sunday night.
Investigators believe the SUV was traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on County Road 600 West when the vehicle came over a rise in the road. Skinner said the vehicle became “light” and the driver over-corrected sending it off the east side of the roadway.
The SUV became airborne when it struck an eight to ten foot tall earthen berm, struck a concrete retaining wall, and flipped for a couple hundred feet before coming to rest.
Police wrapped up their on-scene investigation around 8 p.m. Sunday.
Skinner said the Superintendent of Yorktown Community Schools was proactively bringing extra resources for friends of Andrew Lackey.
