ORLAND, Ind. - Authorities say a northeastern Indiana county's highway superintendent was killed in a weekend motorcycle crash.
Steuben County officials say 66-year-old Ken Penick of Orland had led its highway department for about 10 years.
The Sheriff's Office says Penick died of head injuries Saturday night when his motorcycle crashed into a car that had just turned from a county road onto Indiana 120 about a half mile from his home.
Police say Penick wasn't wearing a helmet. The driver and passenger in the car had minor injuries.
County Commissioner Loretta Smart tells The Herald Republican that Penick worked hard and always had the county in his heart.
