FREMONT — Authorities say a married couple died after the SUV they were riding in was struck by an Indiana State Police trooper who was heading to a crash scene in northeastern Indiana.
The crash happened Tuesday afternoon along the Indiana Toll Road in Steuben County.
Investigators say Trooper Osbaldo Regalado and another trooper were driving westbound in marked state police cars with their emergency lights and sirens activated. State police say Regalado tried to avoid slowing traffic and struck the back of the SUV driven by 76-year-old Terry Lynn Wentworth of Mishawaka.
Police say Wentworth and his wife, 74-year old Gloria Jean Wentworth, died at the scene of their injuries. Regalado was taken to a hospital for what were described as non-life threatening injuries.
The crash is under investigation.
