CLINTON COUNTY, IN — On a quaint rural road Wednesday night, a 17-year-old driver with three passengers was traveling at a speed of 80 miles per hour when she left the road and crashed into a house.
All of those in the car were not seriously injured. However, inside the home, 17-year-old Haleigh Fullerton and 9-year-old Callie Fullerton were instantly killed on impact. The sisters were watching TV in the living room when disaster struck.
The mother, who was walking into the room when the car came crashing in, was injured by debris and airlifted to the hospital, her current condition unknown. The brother, who was upstairs, was not injured and the father was not home at the time.
Police reported the 17-year-old driver, whose name has not yet been released, was visibly impaired when questioned. She was initially charged with recklessness causing death but additional charges may follow depending on toxicology results. She remains jailed.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for the two sisters whose lives were tragically lost so soon.
