SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Indiana State Police have identified the two people killed in a car wreck Tuesday morning in Sullivan County, Ind.

The wreck involved a pickup truck and another car and happened around 7:20 a.m. Dec. 7, ISP Sgt. Matt Ames said, at County Road 300 North and County Road 350 West. ISP said a preliminary investigation has indicated that a 2021 Dodge pickup truck driven by Gary Ferree, 62, of Sullivan, was traveling southbound on County Road 350 West. 

Ferree allegedly failed to yield at the posted stop sign located on the northbound side of the junction, Ames said, and he continued southbound and proceeded into the lanes of County Road 300 North, hitting a 2008 Lincoln driven by Ashley Hedden, 38, of Sullivan, who was traveling eastbound. 

The collision caused both vehicles to move to the south side of the intersection and off the roadway, Ames said, with the Lincoln rolling onto the driver’s side.

The driver of the Lincoln, Ashley Hedden, and her daughter, Grace, age 10, who was a passenger, both died from their injuries at the scene. A second daughter, who was also a passenger in the Lincoln, was transported to the Sullivan County Community Hospital for immediate medical treatment, Ames said. 

Ferree was also transported to the Sullivan County Community Hospital for medical treatment. 

The accident is being reconstructed, Ames said, by Senior Trooper Tim Rader of the Putnamville State Police Post with the assistance of other troopers.

Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a contributing factor for the accident, Ames said. Family members have been notified.
