(VIGO CO.) - At 12:44 p.m. Monday, Indiana State Police, New Goshen Fire/Rescue, and Riley Fire EMS all responded to the northbound lanes of State Road 63 at Durkees Ferry Road for a two-vehicle crash.

According to an Indiana State Police investigation revealed a maroon 2003 Pontiac, driven by 19-year-old Jasmine Wesley of Paris, Illinois was eastbound on Durkees Ferry Road at SR 63. Wesley attempted to cross the northbound lanes of SR 63 and struck a red 2004 Pontiac, driven by 19-year-old Timothy J. Terry of Clinton, in the driver's side. The Terry Pontiac was forced off the eastside of the roadway into a group of trees and the Wesley Pontiac came to rest in the ditch.
