LaGrange woman killed in Steuben County crash

Deanna Shroyer, 43, of LaGrange was killed in a one-vehicle accident Friday evening in Steuben County.

According to reports, Shroyer was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Daniel Shroyer, 49, when he swerved to avoid a pedestrian walking along CR 100N west of CR 600W, losing control of the vehicle. The vehicle reportedly rolled several times, with both occupants ejected. Daniel Shroyer was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Ft. Wayne, while Deanna Shroyer was taken to Cameron Memorial Hospital in Angola, where she was later pronounced dead.

Another vehicle had reportedly stopped along the road after a trailer it was towing came loose when the driver swerved to miss a deer. A passenger in that vehicle was walking to the crest of a hill to alert oncoming traffic when the vehicle driven by Shroyer crested the hill and swerved to avoid the pedestrian.
