WAYNESVILLE, OHIO - A couple from Indiana was killed in Ohio on Tuesday afternoon in a crash involving a semi-truck, car and passenger van.
Authorities at the intersection of Township Line Road and State Route 73 where the crash occurred said the fatal incident could have been avoided if the driver of a red car had stopped at a posted sign.
"The red vehicle that's off the side of the road was traveling south on Township Road," said an officer on the scene. "It appears that the vehicle did not stop at the stop sign."
That car caused a Carter Lumber delivery truck to hit it before going left of center and striking an oncoming van.
The passengers in that van, a married couple from North Vernon, Indiana, died on the scene. The couple was later identified as 66-year-old Robert Large and 66-year-old Margaret Large.
A medical helicopter was called to the scene for a third person shortly before 2 p.m., police said.
The crash remained under investigation.
