Head-on crash claims the lives of two women Saturday

Indiana State Police officers are investigating a two vehicle crash that claimed the lives of two women from Grant County Saturday night.

The crash happened on State Road 15 about a half a mile north of County Road 900 around 10:00 p.m.

Police say 27-year-old Emily Bowyer of Wabash County was driving her Toyota SUV north on State Road 15 when she went left of center for an unknown reason.

Bowyer's vehicle struck an SUV heading south head-on.

The back-seat passenger of the vehicle, 69-year-old Barbara Dryer, heading south died at the scene as a result of that crash.

The driver of that vehicle, 70-year-old Phillip Stephenson and another passenger, 67-year-old Sharon Stephenson, were transported to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.

Stephenson died from her injuries early Sunday morning.

Police say based on evidence located at the scene, it is believed that drugs may have played a factor in this crash but they say the incident remains under investigation at this time.
