The deadly crash happened around 8:30 this morning. (Saturday 12/21)
The Dubois Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Marcos Ayala of Huntingburg was driving a Mitsubishi Galant on US 231 between Jasper and Huntingburg. Deputies say Ayala's car drove over the center line striking 49-year-old Earl Cox driving a Toyota Scion head-on.
Both Ayala and Cox have died from their injuries.
Hector Vazquez, a passenger in the Galant, was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville. Julia Hutchinson was a passenger in the Scion and she too was taken to St. Mary's.
The debris from the crash hit a third car, but no one in that car was hurt.
Deputies say the crash is still under investigation, but the sheriff's officer says early indications point to the inhaling of duster (compressed air) as a contributing factor.
