MADISON COUNTY, Ind. - Two people were killed and in infant was injured in a crash north of Anderson Wednesday night.

Emergency responders pulled a man, later identified as Clayton R. Crumley, 21, from the van. He was taken first to Community Hospital in Anderson and later taken to IU-Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where he was eventually pronounced dead.

The Madison County coroner's office pronounced the woman in the car dead at the scene of the crash. She was identified as Tabitha G. Oliver, 20.
Both Oliver and Crumley were from Summitville, Ind.
