Car accident sends 3 children to the hospital

On July 11, at approximately 3:10 p.m., emergency responders were called to an accident on Baumbauer Road.

Tiffany Sluss, 22, 500 Harriet St., Lagro, was driving a blue 2006 Chevy Aveo, when she entered a curve too fast. The vehicle, containing six occupants, left the roadway and flipped approximately seven times before coming to a rest in a field.

Three children ages 2, 3 and 5 were flown by helicopter for medical treatment. Two of the children were not in child safety restraints.

Sluss was taken to the Wabash County Hospital. Other occupants were a 17-year old and Alisha Turner, 19, Wabash.

Sluss refused a breath sample and chemical test. A warrant for her blood was obtained and results are pending.
