NEW MARKET, Ind. (WISH) — A 14-year-old boy has died from injuries received when the truck he was in struck two other vehicles on the shoulder of State Road 47 on Sunday night, Indiana State Police said.

Thompson was riding in a Dodge Ram 1500 truck driven by Keith Brock, 69, of Waveland. They were southbound on State Road 47 approaching the county road when, for unknown reasons, the truck struck the two vehicles parked on the shoulder, a 1998 Dodge Ram and a small Ford dump truck.
Brock was taken to Franciscan Health Crawfordsville and later flown to St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital by helicopter.
Blake High, 29, of Waveland, and Donald Peters, 39, of Crawfordsville, were struck while standing outside of the vehicles on the shoulder. They were taken to Franciscan Health Crawfordsville.
Trooper Corey E. Brown with the Lafayette post of the state police said in an email response to News 8 that the conditions of the people sent to hospitals were not known late Monday afternoon.
A third person seated in one of the disabled vehicles was not injured. State police did not identify that person in their news release.
