ISP identifies two killed in fiery crash on Indiana Toll Road

STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. -- Police have released the names of the two people killed in a crash between a semi and a car on the Indiana Toll Road Thursday morning.

The crash happened near the 156 mile marker just after 10 a.m., according to the Indiana State Police.

Troopers say a semi, driven by Dawn Liggett, was traveling westbound when it crossed the center median for an unknown reason and into the eastbound lanes.

The semi collided with a Prius traveling eastbound.

Troopers say the semi rolled over onto the Prius and both came to rest in a ditch on the south side of the road. Both vehicles caught fire.

The two occupants of the car were pronounced dead at the scene. They have been identified as 65-year-old Diana Hicks and 63-year-old Jay Zell Sr, both of Laramie Wyoming.

Liggett was transported to Parkview Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
