Two people are dead, two are at University Hospital and one person walked away from an overnight accident in Floyd County.
 
Police said they were called to the accident on State Route 111 around 11:30 Tuesday night just north of the Horseshoe Casino.

Indiana State Police said a black Dodge Neon was driving south on SR 111 when it crossed the center line, hit a white Toyota Camry traveling north, and then crashed into a tree.

The driver of the Neon and the front seat passenger died at the scene.  26-year-old Tomas Fung and 26-year-old Jordan Burries are the names of the two deceased, but it is not clear yet which was driving. 

The two passengers in the back were ejected and air lifted to University Hospital where it is reported they are in serious condition.  

The driver of the Camry was not injured in the crash.

Family members said it was supposed to be a night of fun for the four people in the Neon who are from the Indianapolis area.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
