At the time, Indiana State Police said a car heading south on County Road 300 West didn't stop at U.S. 50 – instead driving into the path of a semi-truck.

The car was being driven by 31-year-old Andre Devant, of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Devant and his two passengers – 27-year-old Margaret A. Guinn and 3-year-old Aaliyah Guinn – were killed in the collision.

The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

On Wednesday, Indiana State Police released toxicology results showing Devant had a BAC of .19 percent at the time of the crash. Police said Devant also tested positive for marijuana.
