WARSAW, Ind.--- A mother and her infant daughter were airlifted, and a woman was arrested after a crash that occurred early Monday morning in Kosciusko County.
According to Stacey Page Online, the crash occurred around 6:45 a.m. this morning at the intersection of County Farm Road and 400 South.
The Kosciusko County Sheriff's Dept. arrived on the scene to find a 2007 Chevy Impala flipped on its roof after being struck by a 1995 Ford F150 pick-up truck.
The driver of the Impala, Keisha DeWeese, 18, of Warsaw and her 3-month-old daughter, Laila Holliday, were both trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters.
They both were airlifted from the scene with serious injuries, but were later listed in stable condition.
The driver of the truck was reported to have left the scene by Jennifer Miller, 36, of Warsaw, who had initially claimed to have been a passenger in the truck.
KCSD officers along with the Warsaw Police Department, Winona Lake Police Department, Indiana State Police and a canine unit, investigated and searched for the driver.
However, it was later discovered that Miller had actually been the driver of the truck, and that the incident had occurred after she failed to stop at a stop sign.
Miller was arrested as a habitual offender and for false informing.
She has been booked into the Kosciusko County Jail.
