GREENFIELD — Weather is believed to be a factor in a Monday collision between an SUV and a pickup truck that killed a woman and her adult son along a central Indiana road following a night of snowfall, police said.
Witnesses told police that the victims’ SUV lost control and spun along a Hancock County road east of Indianapolis before entering oncoming traffic and colliding with the pickup about 6 a.m. Monday.
Crash investigators said that the SUV’s driver, 54-year-old Amy Cox, died along with her 24-year-old son, Isaac Cox. Both crash victims were from New Palestine and they were pronounced dead at the scene.
The pickup’s driver was not seriously injured in the crash.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that weather conditions likely played a role in the fatal crash. The sheriff’s office urged motorists “to slow down and use extreme caution” in inclement weather.
