KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. - The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office reports it's currently investigating a fatal crash which occurred at the intersection of US 30 and CR 900 East in eastern Kosciusko County.

Emergency personnel responded to the intersection Tuesday morning around 10:48 a.m. to a two-vehicle motor vehicle crash.
