Remembering Edith Schmucker, fourth victim of Wednesday's crash that killed Rep. Walorski and two staffers

NAPPANEE, Ind. -- Although most of the attention from Wednesday's fatal crash has been directed towards Rep. Jackie Walorski and her two staffers, the fourth victim, 56-year old Edith Schmucker, was reportedly just on her way home from work when she was hit head-on.

Schmucker was originally thought to have crossed the center line and hit the vehicle driven by Walorski's campaign manager Zachery Potts, but after a revised accident report released by police, it was confirmed that Potts crossed the center line, leaving Schmucker not at fault for the crash.

The Nappanee native, who graduated from Warsaw High School in 1985, worked as a personal care attendant at Miller's Senior Living Community, according to her social media.

She leaves behind three sons.
