BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – An 18-year-old teen died Friday after being involved in a serious two-vehicle accident on Monday.

Just after 12:30 p.m., multiple agencies were dispatched to the intersection of CR 850 N and CR 550 E on the report of a crash involving a Zore’s tow truck and another vehicle.

Police determined the truck, driven by 26-year-old Dayne Zielinski, of Fremont, was traveling westbound on 850 N when police say a 2000 Ford Mustang, driven by 18-year-old Jaden Quick, drove through an intersection on CR 550 E and struck the truck.

Quick was airlifted to St. Vincent in critical condition. He passed away late Friday and is donating his organs.

Zielinski was transported in stable condition with injuries to his shoulder and collarbone.

Police believe drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash.
