Elkhart County police say a car carrying the four teens was eastbound on County Road 36 and entered the intersection of State Road 19. It was struck by a southbound pickup truck which then drifted left and sideswiped a northbound pickup. The impact caused the northbound truck to strike the side of the first car.

17-year-old Brecklin Hamby was a passenger in the car and died at the scene. 17-year-old Nicolas Crail and 17-year-old Stepheni Gongwer were both unconscious and taken to area hospitals. The driver – 17-year-old Melissa Delgado was taken to a hospital complaining of pain.

62-year-old Lynn Loucks of Elkhart was driving the first pickup truck and was not injured.

38-year-old Joey Sword of Pikeville, Kentucky was driving the second pickup and complained of pain.

The sheriff's department crash investigation team is heading up the investigation.
