ECKERTY, Ind. (WISH) — A two-vehicle crash in Crawford County Thursday left a woman dead, state police said.

The crash happened in the 5700 block of State Road 64 — that’s in Eckerty.

A blue 2003 Buick, driven by Mildred Mitchell, 68, of St. Croix, was eastbound on the roadway when it crossed the center line for an unknown reason. The Buick hit a westbound silver 2012 Peterbilt, driven by Clint Peay, 40, of St. Meinrad.

Both vehicles came to a rest at the edge of the roadway, a few feet away from the initial crash.

Mitchel was pronounced dead at the scene. Peay was uninjured, police said.
