TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Three family members were killed in October when a farming combine failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the family's van. The man driving the combine will face no criminal charges for failing to stop.
The crash happened at State Road 25 and County Road 800 South in Tippecanoe County.
Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington says 36-year-old Carl MacFarland of West Point, Ind., the driver of the combine, will not be charged for the accident, which killed 62-year-old Daniel Fox, 40-year-old Stacy Fox and 15-year-old Demara Fox of Attica, Ind.
The other three passengers in the car (17-year-old Demetria Fox, 13-year-old Dakota Fox and 18-year-old Margaret Carpenter of Attica) were transported to Riley Children's Hospital and IU Health Arnett Hospital and released.
According to Harrington, investigators are deeming the Foxes' deaths "a horrific accident." He said mere negligence on MacFarland's part does not merit criminal charges.
