JENNINGS COUNTY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- A three-vehicle accident Thursday in Jennings County, Ind. killed one man and injured two others.
Indiana State Police said the accident happened at 4:15 p.m. when a 2004 Toyota Prius driven by Marcea Oetting, 43 of Orlando, Fla., turned in front of another vehicle on U.S. 50 east at State Road 1750.
Police said Oetting failed to yield and was struck by 21-year-old Zachary Ziegler of Westport, Ind. Ziegler was driving a 2012 Ford F250 with a 25 ft. flatbed trailer attached.
The truck struck Oetting’s vehicle, police said, and continued into the westbound lane where it struck a 1996 Buick driven by Gregory Green, 52 of North Vernon. The force was so great that the Buick split in two.
Green was pronounced dead at the scene. Ziegler and Oetting suffered minor bruising and lacerations.
