A 22 year old from Brazil, Indiana, has been identified as the driver, and lone occupant, of a vehicle who was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-vehicle crash in Newton County Friday morning. The Newton County Sheriff's Office today reports Daniel Dillman was heading north on U-S 41, just north of Kentland, when for unknown reasons the vehicle drifted off the roadway. Authorities say when Dillman attempted to return to the roadway, he lost control, crossed the median, and into the path of a southbound tractor trailer. The truck driver was not injured.
