Authorities: 2 dead in weather-related crash in Indiana

CROMWELL, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a crash on a snow- and ice-covered road in rural northern Indiana has killed a police officer and his wife.

The Noble County Sheriff's Office says 22-year-old Ligonier Police Officer Ethan Kiser's SUV spun into the path of another SUV near Cromwell on Monday night. Deputies say the crash also killed 21-year-old Shawna Kiser.

The crash happened after snow hit the area and ahead of a deep freeze that's forecast for Tuesday night through Thursday afternoon for much of the state.

Among the universities cancelling classes because of the cold weather at least for Wednesday are Notre Dame, Ball State, Purdue-Fort Wayne, Manchester, Anderson, Indianapolis and Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis.
