LAKE VILLAGE, Ind. (WLFI) — One person is dead after a crash in Newton County Friday night.

Sheriff's deputies said it happened around 10:15 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 41 and County Road 950 North. That's in Lake Village about one half mile south of State Road 10.

Investigators said a car driven by a 17-year-old Daniel T. Hammond from Tinley Park, IL was eastbound on C.R. 950 North, crossing the north bound lanes of U.S. 41.

Hammond failed to stop for a semi headed northbound and was killed in the crash.

The 47-year-old semi driver from Morroco refused medical treatment at the scene.
