Woman dies in fatal car crash in La Porte County

La Porte County, Ind. A La Porte County woman was killed in a crash Tuesday morning, just a quarter mile from her home.

It happened at the intersection of U.S. 20 and County Road 325 West. 75-year-old Norma Rauschenbach was traveling west on U.S. 20 when she stopped in the passing lane, waiting for traffic to clear, so she could turn.

She was hit from behind, pushed into the eastbound lane of U.S. 20 and into the path of a Mercedes. Rauschenbach was pronounced dead on the scene. Everyone involved in the crash was wearing a seatbelt.
