An engaged couple was killed in a tragic auto accident on Highway 135 in Indiana last week. According to authorities, the couple’s green Chevrolet was pushed into oncoming traffic after it was rear-ended by a minivan. The Chevrolet was also carrying two teenage girls who were badly injured, a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old. The 15-year-old was ejected from the Chevrolet and had to have her spleen removed. Both girls are expected to recover. Friends and family say the engaged couple loved each other very much and the accident is heartbreaking. The deadly crash remains under investigation and the driver of the minivan is not facing charges at this time. The couple was to be married in April of 2017.
