TIPPECANOE CO. — A Wingate couple was killed Friday evening after a three-vehicle crash in Tippecanoe County.

David Anderson, 38, and his wife, Rachel Anderson, 31, were fatally injured after colliding their Ford F-150 with a semi-tractor on State Road 25.

According to the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office, the 16-year-old driver of a Jeep failed to yield the right of way as they were driving east on County Road 800 and drove into the path of a southbound semi-tractor trailer.

In an effort to not hit the Jeep, the driver of the semi, 58-year-old Jeffrey Tolin, swerved left and struck the Anderon's Ford truck.

At this time, officials do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

The incident remains under investigation.
