LA FONTAINE, Ind. (WFFT)- Three people, including a murder suspect, are dead after a crash in Wabash County Sunday morning.

A preliminary investigation showed Terissa Williams, 19, of Peru was northbound on SR 15 and crossed the center line. She struck a Mack garbage truck head-on, and her and her passengers had to be extricated from the vehicle. The extrication took about an hour and a half.
