New Castle, Ind.—A deadly end to a violent crash; a school nurse and her husband killed, another woman still in the hospital in serious condition. Now a 5-year old boy is without his parents and police are trying to figure out what exactly happened.
Footprints of the crash were still visible on Wednesday. Skid marks heading southbound into the intersection of Trojan Lane and State Road 3 in Lebanon and burn marks where the Plymouth Breeze Jason and Stacy Sweigart were in caught fire.
The location of the crash is a 45-mile-per hour zone, but police say they heard reports that 67-year-old Samie McBride had been driving in excess of 80-miles per hour, weaving and driving erratically in her silver Ford Taurus. When her car hit Jason and Stacy's, their Plymouth turned into a fireball.
"The vehicle immediately caught fire and within a matter of seconds was fully engulfed," said police.
Lifeline landed in the intersection, but both Stacy and Jason died at the scene. The chopper transported Samie McBride to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where she's in serious condition.
Police have not had a chance to interview her. The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
