A Milan High School student was killed in a Tuesday morning crash in Ohio County.
Indiana State Police say that at approximately 7 a.m., troopers responded to a two vehicle crash on State Road 56 just south of Rising Sun. Investigators say that a pickup truck driven by 16-year-old Dylan K. Levi, of Rising Sun, was traveling south on State Route 56 when, for unknown reasons, Levi’s pickup crossed the center-line into the path of a car driven by 17-year-old Micayla D. Acra, of Milan. State Police say the vehicles collided head-on.
Investigators say that Acra sustained fatal injuries in the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Levi, who is a student at Rising Sun High School, reportedly sustained minor injuries. He was treated and released at a local hospital.
The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing. State Police say that the roads were wet at the time of the crash and may have been a contributing factor. They add that Levi submitted to a drug and alcohol test at a local hospital, although drug and alcohol use is not suspected at this time.
State Road 56 was closed for approximately three and a half hours for crash investigation and cleanup.
