19-year-old killed in Madison County crash, teen suspects charged

The Madison County Sheriff's Office is investigating a deadly crash that happened early Sunday morning east of Anderson.

ANDERSON, Ind. (WTHR) - The Madison County Sheriff is investigating a deadly crash that happened early Sunday morning east of Anderson.

The crash occurred on Madison County 200 South northeast of Hoosier Park before 4:30 a.m., according to information shared by Sheriff Scott Mellinger.

The victim of the crash was later identified as 19-year-old Sophie Darlene Robbins of Dunkirk, Indiana.

Authorities believe that a white SUV driven by Robbins was either following, or being followed by a four-door passenger car containing four suspects.


The suspects told deputies that both parties "frequently congregate late night or early mornings and hang out, and sometimes drive recklessly kind of showing off for one another."

Authorities say in this incident, the vehicles were eastbound on 38th Street and when they crossed State Road 67 and where 38th Street turns into County Road 200 S., the white SUV driven by Robbins lost control, left the roadway and rolled multiple times, ejecting the driver in the driveway of one of the residences on 200 S.

The four suspects in the red vehicle witnessed the crash but fled the scene and failed to call 911, according to Sheriff Mellinger.

Alex Lozano, 18, was charged Sunday with:

  • Failure to Report Accident Resulting in Death (Level 4 Felony)
  • Criminal Recklessness resulting in Death (Level 5 Felony)
  • False Informing (Class A Misdemeanor)

Keandre Williams, 19, was charged with Failure to Report Accident Resulting in Death (Level 4 Felony).

An unnamed juvenile in was taken into custody and remanded to Juvenile Detention for Failure to Report Accident Resulting in Death.

Authorities say the fourth suspect is on the run and will be named at a later time.

The investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with information may call Crime stoppers at 765-649-8310 or Detective Brad Oster at 765-646-9281.
