Teen driver killed in crash with tractor

COVINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Police say a car filled with five teenagers crashed into a farm tractor on a rural road in western Indiana, killing the 16-year-old driver.

Fountain County Sheriff William Sanders says the crash happened Wednesday evening near the town of Covington.

Sanders tells the Journal & Courier that the driver was pronounced dead at the scene, one passenger was taken to a hospital and the others declined treatment. The tractor driver suffered minor injuries.

Police tell WLFI-TV that the car might have been speeding when it topped a hill as tractor approached from the other direction about 30 miles southwest of Lafayette. The car hit an implement attached to the tractor, a wheel of the tractor and then spun out of control.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released.
