A Mishawaka woman died Wednesday in a crash on U.S. 30 in Kosciusko County, the county sheriff’s department said Thursday.
Kathy Harmon, 47, was driving east behind a semi about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. 30 east of County Road 500 West, the sheriff’s department said.
A westbound semi crossed the center line and collided with the trailer in front of Harmon, glancing off and colliding with Harmon’s vehicle head-on in the median. Harmon, who was trapped in her vehicle, died at the scene, the sheriff’s department said.
U.S. 30 is under construction, authorities said, and both eastbound and westbound traffic was using the westbound lanes of U.S. 30.
