Thirty-five-year-old Felina Lewis and three juveniles, ages thirteen, seven, and four were in the second vehicle. Indiana Conservation Officer Jet Quillen said, “With the amount of waterfall we’ve had lately, the rainfall, it obviously caused it to be a flood stage and from what we can gather, washed a bridge away.” This accident remains under investigation.last_img
