CASS COUNTY — Two people died in a crash Thursday night in Cass County, police said.

Cass County Sheriff Ed Schroder said in a news release Jeremy Aubrey, 47, of Logansport, and Shane Saunders, 44, of Lucerne, were killed in the two-vehicle crash at about 7:30 p.m. on south of County Road 200 North on State Road 25.

Aubrey was driving a 2010 Chevrolet pickup truck southbound on State Road 25 when he struck a large pig in the roadway, Schroder said. Aubrey's pickup truck then veered into the northbound lane and struck Saunders' 2020 Chevrolet HHR.

Medics transported Aubrey to Logansport Memorial Hospital where he died. Saunders was flown to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne where he also died from his injuries.

State Road 25 was closed for more than three hours following the crash, which is still under investigation. Anyone with information about the crash should contact the Cass County Sheriff's Office at 574-753-7800.
