LA FONTAINE, Ind. (WTHR) - Three people died in a crash in northern Indiana Sunday morning, including a murder suspect.

Terissa Williams, 19, was driving north on SR-15 near Wabash County Road 1100 South when her car crossed the center line and hit a garbage truck head-on around 8:20 a.m. It took first responders an hour and a half to get everyone out of Williams' car.

Williams and her passengers, 21-year-old Kaleb Marin and 21-year-old Thomas Reed, both of Marion, were all pronounced dead at the scene. The garbage truck driver was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital to be treated for back pain.

Marin was a suspect in the April 25 murder of 22-year-old Jordon Richards, who was found shot and killed in his La Fontaine home. Multiple firearms and cash were stolen from Richards' home at the time. One of those stolen guns was found inside Williams' car after Sunday's crash.

Both the crash and the murder are still under investigation.
