MIAMI COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Peru man is dead after a two-vehicle crash on Friday.

Police say at around 5 a.m. officers responded to a crash at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Business 31 in Peru.

A Freightliner semi driven by 41-year-old Celena Borders of Seymour was headed northbound approaching a red stoplight at Business 31. The semi failed to stop and t-boned a pickup truck driven by 49-year-old Gregory Monin of Peru.

The truck had the right of way and was attempting a southbound turn at the time of the crash.

Monin was taken to a Peru hospital where he died due to injuries he suffered in the crash. Borders was not injured.

Borders was issued a citation for disregarding a traffic control device.

Investigators do not believe alcohol or narcotics were a factor in the crash.
