DALEVILLE – Investigators say the SUV that crashed Sunday near Daleville was going more than 110 miles per hour before it went off the road, killing three people and injuring three teenagers.
According to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, a crash reconstruction team believes the vehicle also blew past a stop sign at the intersection of County Road 600 West and County Road 500 North. That location is about a quarter of a mile away from the eventual spot where the Cadillac Escalade left the road, hit a retaining wall and rolled over.
Authorities said their investigation showed the crash was a result of reckless driving.
The smashed vehicle ended up on top of some large boulders. At least two people were ejected. The others were trapped inside.
Lisa Case, the 46-year-old driver, Kent Kalley, 46, and Andrew Lackey, 12, were killed. Savannah Kalley, Trace Joiner and Jessica DeLong—all 13 years old—survived, but had to be taken by medical helicopter to Indianapolis-area hospitals.
