SHIPSHEWANA — Authorities say three men from eastern Indiana were killed in a head-on crash along a northern Indiana highway.
The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department says 21-year-old Dwayne Davis of Parker City, and 19-year-old Frederick Petro and 26-year-old Christopher Whiteman, both of Muncie, were killed in the accident about 2:30 p.m. Friday, May 24, on U.S. 20 near the Elkhart County line. Authorities say the car driven by Davis was headed eastbound and appeared to go left of center to pass another vehicle when it struck a truck headed westbound.
The driver of the truck was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital. His condition was not known.
