TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — According to Tippecanoe County Corner Donna Avolt, the victim of Tuesday's fatal crash on State Road 26 and 900 East is 42-year-old Tamara Rose Hough. 

An autopsy is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Around 10:50 a.m., deputies said a Dodge Durango was driving on 900 East and didn't stop at a stop sign. The Durango collided with a semi at the intersection and the two vehicles traveled off the side of the road into a ditch.

Hough was the passenger in the Durango. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, 40-year-old Debra J. Johansen of Lafayette, was taken to IU Arnett and later flown to IU Methodist in Indianapolis with critical injuries. The man driving the semi, 29-year-old Zarco Dragic of Chicago, was not hurt.

Deputies said the two women were not wearing seat belts. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the crash.
