A Warsaw woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 30 Wednesday.

Amanda Hench, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office. She died from blunt force trauma, according to a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office news release. She was the driver of a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan.

Others in the vehicle who were injured included front-seat passenger Christine Hench, 54, Warsaw, with multiple broken bones and ribs; middle-row driver’s side passenger Martha Paxton, 75, Warsaw, with leg and facial injuries; a rear-row unidentified 7-year-old girl with chest injuries; and a rear passenger unidentified 4-year-old boy with unknown injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, was identified as Christopher Graber, 58, Warsaw, and he was not injured.

The release states that, according to Graber, he was traveling east on U.S. 30 and was slowing in the left-hand lane to assist a motorist stopped along the westbound side of U.S. 30. Graber told officers that he was activating his hazard lights when his pickup was struck in the rear by Hench’s Caravan.

Extrication was needed to free Christine Hench. All of the patients were transported to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.

This crash remains under investigation by the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office Fatal Team.
