MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) – Police are investigating after one person was killed and another was airlifted to the hospital after a crash between a semitrailer and a car Tuesday afternoon in Marshall County.

The woman who was killed was identified Tuesday night as 44-year-old Dorcas H. Figueroa, of South Bend.

The collision happened around 2:08 p.m. at U.S. 30 and Plymouth Goshen Trail, according to a release from the Marshall County Police Department.

A gray Honda Accord reportedly was headed north on Plymouth Goshen Trail when it was hit by a semitrailer that was eastbound on U.S. 30.

Figueroa, the Honda's driver, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other Honda occupant was driven to the airport and subsequently airlifted with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, but the Marshall County coroner announced in a Tuesday night press release that that person remains in the intensive care unit.

A family dog was also in the Honda. The animal is being cared for at the Marshall County Humane Society.

The driver of the truck was uninjured.
