The T-bone fashion crash that resulted, sent Sutton's Ford into the northbound lanes of State Road 37, fatally wounding Sutton.

Sutton was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hinshaw and her passenger were transported by ambulance to Indianapolis for treatment regarding complaints of pain. Their conditions were not known at the time of this release.
