CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Carroll County investigators have released the names of the three drivers involved in Friday's fatal crash on U.S. 421. 18-year-old Caleb Delk of Monticello died in the crash.
As News 18 previously reported, Delk was driving north on U-S 421. Police said he didn't notice traffic slowing ahead and rear-ended a Honda driven by 57-year-old James Lipe of Carmel.
Delk's car deflected into the opposite lane. That's when investigators said he was hit head on by a pick-up truck driven by 19-year-old Fred Rodkey of Frankfort.
The Carroll County Sheriff's Office could not give an update to the medical condition of Lipe or Rodkey, but said their injuries are non-life threatening.
The crash caused 421 to be closed for several hours on Friday.
First responders have confirmed at least one person is dead in a crash on U.S. 421 in Carroll County. Right now, the highway is completely closed between 700 North and 850 North.
Investigators are waiting on the Carroll County Coroner and accident reconstructionists to arrive. The road will remain closed until their investigation is complete.
Lieutenant Dan Dulin with DNR says there may be more fatalities. They are waiting on an update from area hospitals.
