Emergency crews were called to the scene on State Road 246 west of SR 159 in Clay County just after 12:30 p.m.

According to an Indiana State Police report, Layla Raines of Jasonville suffered traumatic injuries as a result of being struck by a 2009 Nissan Quest van driven by 39-year-old Stephen D. Agee, also of Jasonville, on State Road 246.
