TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A man is dead and another injured after a three vehicle crash in Tippecanoe County.

An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

Baltazar was driving a blue Honda Civic north on South County Road 900 East. Deputies said he ran a stop sign at the intersection with State Road 38 East.

Another vehicle, driven by 63-year-old Julia Hoffman of Frankfort, hit the Civic on the driver's side. The car was then hit, again, by an oncoming truck.

Baltazar was pronounced dead at the scene. A male passenger inside was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital. Avolt did not have any information as of Wednesday on his condition. 

Hoffman was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the truck, 39-year-old Shane Pyle of Frankfort, was not injured.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors, according to deputies.
