One Dead in Four Vehicle Accident in Vigo Co.

One person was killed in a four-vehicle accident Thursday night on US 40 in eastern Vigo County.

Indiana State Police say a medical condition may have caused 25-year-old Catherine Burk of Brazil to lose control of her SUV.

Burk's vehicle ran off and then re-entered the  highway hitting a westbound pick-up truck driven by 23-year-old Vance Smith of Terre Haute.

Smith's truck then hit an oncoming car driven by 51-year-old Karen Price of Brazil.

Price's car was then hit by a second pickup truck driven by 46-year-old William Hastings of Terre Haute.

Karen Price was killed in the crash.

Burk and Smith escaped injury while Hastings is believed to have suffered only minor injuries.
