Off-road vehicle crash kills woman, 2 children

CENTER POINT, Ind. – Authorities say an Indianapolis woman and two toddlers died after an off-road vehicle slammed into a concrete wall along a rural western Indiana road.

Indiana Conservation officers on Monday identified the victims of Sunday's crash as 22-year-old Andrea Allen of Indianapolis, her 1-year-old son, Jaylen Rawls, of Harvey, Ill., and 2-year-old Nevaeh Dempsey, a friend's daughter from Indianapolis.

Allen's other son, 2-year-old Xavier Rawls of Harvey, Ill., was in stable condition Monday at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

State Conservation Officer Lt. William Browne said the three toddlers were riding in front of Allen, who was driving the 1996 Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV.

The three died after the vehicle crashed into the end of a culvert and caught fire near the town of Center Point about 60 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
