Two sisters and a family friend are recovering at hospitals after a combine and their minivan crashed.
On Wednesday evening, the John Deer combine was driving west on 800 South Road. Investigators said the driver of the combine, Carl McFarland, did not completely stop at the stop sign. As a result, the combine drove into the intersection and hit a white minivan, which was headed north on State Road 25 South.
Spencer said her son saw the crash just shortly before 5 p.m.
"When he came up to me, he said that the van got ran over," Spencer said.
A family of five and a family friend were inside the van at the time of the crash. Daniel and Stacy Fox and their 15-year-old daughter, Demara, were killed. Their two other children, Demetria, 17, and Dakota, 13, were taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. The other passenger, 18-year-old Margaret Carpenter, was taken to IU Hospital in Lafayette.
The family and Carpenter are from Attica, Ind.
"I was shaking, going to work afterward and everything just 'cause it was crazy. I just couldn't believe it," Spencer said.
McFarland was not hurt in the crash. He is at the Clinton County Jail because of an outstanding warrant for criminal mischief and writ for contempt. It is unclear whether he will be charged in this crash.
"I just feel so terrible for everybody involved and (my) sympathies go out. That's for sure," Spencer said.
