CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. -- A woman was killed in a crash with a reserve deputy who was responding to an emergency situation early Saturday morning. 

Indiana State Police were called to the scene on State Road 75 in Camden just before 9 a.m.

Grimes was airlifted to Indianapolis where she later died from her injuries. Deputy Amsler was taken to a local hospital to be treated for pain. 

The crash remains under investigation by Indiana State Police.
