MADISON COUNTY, Ind. - Two people were killed and in infant was injured in a crash north of Anderson Wednesday night.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office said just before 6 p.m., a van was traveling north on State Road 9 near Cottonwood Drive when (for unknown reasons) it crossed the center line, left the roadway, traveled into a ditch and then struck a utility pole before coming to rest on its side.
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.
As EMS crews were working on pulling a woman from the wreckage, they said they heard the cry of a small child. The child was pulled from the car and airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
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.
