Officials released the name of a Poland woman killed in a two-vehicle accident Friday.
According to Clay County Sheriff's Department officials, Anna Nicholls, 81, Poland, was pronounced dead at the scene of a fatal accident involving a delivery van and a passenger car near the intersection of State Road 59 and SR 46 at 1:17 p.m., Friday.
Apparently Caleb Peelman, 20, Clinton, allegedly failed to yield the right of way and drove into the passenger side of the car driven by Tennessee resident Gary Schopmeyer, 46. Schopmeyer was air lifted to Wishard Hospital, Indianapolis, for treatment of his injuries, while Peelman was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital.
An autopsy, per protocols, has been scheduled to help determine the cause of Nicholls' death.
Officials confirmed to The Brazil Times that drugs or alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the accident, which is continuing to be investigated.
