ODELL — Authorities say the three people killed in a grisly combine-minivan crash were a western Indiana couple and their 15-year-old daughter.

The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department told the Journal and Courier and The Indianapolis Star Thursday that the couple's two other daughters and a friend also were injured.

Officers say 62-year-old Daniel Fox of Attica, 40-year-old Stacy Fox, and their 15-year-old daughter Demara Fox died in the crash.

Police say two other daughters, 17-year-old Demetria and 13-year-old Dakota Fox, are hospitalized at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. Family friend 18-year-old Margaret Carpenter of Attica was being treated at a Lafayette hospital.

Police say the combine's driver failed to stop at the intersection of Indiana 25 and a county road about 10 miles southwest of Lafayette and plowed into the Foxes' minivan.
