BUNKER HILL – A man from Nashville, Indiana, was killed Wednesday evening during a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 31 in Miami County.
Deputies say Paul Chase, 58, was exiting a gas station at the corner of U.S. 31 and 850 South at around 5:30 p.m. in a 2008 Toyota Prius.
Chase failed to yield to southbound traffic on U.S. 31 and pulled into the path of a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by Carla Buss, 43, Galveston, deputies said.
The PT Cruiser hit the Prius on the driver’s side door, killing Chase.
Buss suffered lower body injuries and was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital. Chase was pronounced dead at the scene.
Deputies said they don’t suspect drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash, which is still under investigation.
