Funeral services are scheduled for Thursday for a woman killed in LaPorte County after a tree fell on the car she was traveling in.

Sarah Swisher, 36, was sitting in the backseat when the tree pinned her and two others in the car.

The accident happened on Indiana 39, just south of the LaPorte municipal airport at about 6 p.m. Friday.

Swisher's husband and a family friend were also in the car. They both made it out alive.

The coroner for LaPorte County says Swisher was alive at the scene, but later died from a severe head injury.
