Winamac's Brittany Crase, 18, Dies in Pulaski County Big Rig Crash Over July 4th Weekend


Over the Fourth of July Weekend, Starke County teen Brittany Crase died in a tragic big rig – car collision at the intersection of County Road 200 North and County Road 500 West in Pulaski County.

She was one of three passengers in a 1995 Dodge Intrepid driven by her friend, Ashley Lovins, 18, of North Judson. Lovins was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital from the accident site; the other two passengers were also taken to nearby hospitals for medical care.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of this truck wreck. While Brittany Chase died at the scene, big rig driver Randall Mitchell was not injured. As we’ve discussed before, this is not a surprising result when you consider a collision between a 3500 lb. car and an 80,000+ pound semi-truck, both of which are moving at some level of speed.

The investigation continues. Remember, be cautious.
