Indiana State Police said Emilio E. Santana, 26, of Macy, was driving south on County Road 600 West shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday when his 1996 Chevrolet Lumina failed to stop at the stop sign at Division Road.
The car collided with a 1999 Jeep Cherokee driven by Cara L. McCollister, 35, of Roann, state police said in a statement issued Monday.
The Jeep was struck on the driver’s side, causing it to go off the road, snap a utility pole in half, go airborne and then roll on its top, the statement said.
It said McCollister and her son were extricated and then flown to a hospital in Fort Wayne, where the woman died from her injuries.
Santana, who was not injured, has been charged with reckless homicide, state police said. His wife, a passenger in the car, was treated at an area hospital and released.
