State Police say a one-vehicle crash in Cass County has resulted in the death of 61-year-old Mara Petty of Logansport. She was pronounced dead at the scene after her car ran over a set of railroad tracks and into a ditch at the side of a county road near Waverly.
Meanwhile, a Waverly deputy town marshal was responding to the accident when his police car, with lights flashing, collided with another car at an intersection on Logansport Road. 38-year-old Deputy Marshal Jeffery Packard and the other driver, 30-year-old Jeremy Hendricks of Peru, were taken to a hospital but police say their injuries are not life-threatening.
