The Jay County Sheriff's Department says the crash at the intersection of two county roads also badly injured the car's driver.
The sheriff's department says 50-year-old Homer Darnell and 43-year-old Vanessa Darnell died at the scene following Saturday's crash. The department says 64-year-old Luke Fullenkamp of rural Portland apparently drove through a stop sign and into the motorcycle's path at the intersection about 30 miles northeast of Muncie.
The car went into a ditch and hit a utility pole before ending up on its side in a ditch. ?The Star Press ?reports Fullenkamp suffered head injuries and was in critical condition at a Fort Wayne hospital.
