STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - One person is dead after a crash Sunday evening in Steuben County.
Police said they were called to SR 120 near CR 700 North just before 7:00 p.m. When they got there, they found a 2012 Fiat 500 upside down.
The driver of the Fiat, Susan Jakovljevic, age 48 of Fremont, Indiana, was ejected from the car and found laying in the roadway. Jakovljevic died at the scene from blunt force injuries.
The airbags in the car did deploy, but the Jakovljevic was not wearing a seatbelt.
An investigation determined Jakovljevic was westbound on SR 120 when she crossed the center line and sideswiped a 2012 Freightliner tractor driven by 60-year-old Bartholomew Tinder of Michigan.
