Both deputies were killed in a single-car crash while responding to help a deputy town marshal in Clinton County early Saturday morning, according to Indiana State Police.

Rainey was on-duty and Northcutt was off-duty and doing a ride-along.

Around 1:30 a.m., they were responding to help a deputy Rossville town marshal who requested assistance during a traffic stop, Indiana State Police Sgt. Jeremy Piers said.
