DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. - A man driving a Mini Cooper was killed when a teenage driver in an SUV over-corrected and struck his vehicle, police said.
The crash happened just after 8:30 a.m. near the intersection of Wheeling Avenue and County Road 450 North in Delaware County, the Star Press reported.
A teenage girl driving an SUV was northbound on Wheeling when she drove off the road, over-corrected and nearly hit another vehicle before over-correcting again and striking the Mini Cooper head on, police said.
The man driving the Mini Cooper, who is believed to have been in his 30s or 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The teen driver suffered minor injuries.
Police said wet road conditions likely contributed to the crash.
A witness told the Star Press that the teenager said the crash happened when she looked down to change the radio station.
