MUNCIE, Ind. (Jan. 3. 2015) -- A Central Indiana community is in mourning after two high school girls were killed in a car crash Friday.
Anne Clark, 18 and her sister Caroline lost their lives when the pick up truck they were riding in lost control along County Road 400 North and slammed in to a building in Vermilion County. The driver of the truck, Ethan Lee, 18, of Cayuga was airlifted to IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis to be treated for neck and internal injuries. Another teen, Braeden Hollowell, 18, of Cayuga died.
Indiana State Police investigators say a woman inside the business was hospitalized after being hit by debris from the crash.
In Muncie, there is a lot of sadness and grief following the crash. By all accounts, Anne Clark and her sister loved each other and had a loving family. A friend says they attended Cowan Junior/Senior High School. Students will have to return after holiday break, Monday, without them.
Investigators think speed may have played a role in this crash and seat belts were not used.
