Wolcottville man dies in Saturday crash


A Wolcottville man was pronounced dead at the scene of a crash early Saturday morning.

According to the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department, Derek Trittipo, 34, of CR 550S was eastbound shortly after 2 a.m. on CR 375N near 9400W when his vehicle struck several mailboxes and a parked Chevy Trailblazer.

The police report noted that Trittipo overcorrected after the initial impact, which caused him to lose control of his vehicle.

Trittipo’s vehicle then struck several trees after leaving the roadway on the south side. His vehicle came to rest in the roadway.

A full obituary for Trittipo is on page 2 of today’s LaGrange Standard.
