SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A 29-year-old Shelbyville woman died in a five-vehicle crash Wednesday, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday.

Haley Wells was pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner, said a news release from Maj. Louie Koch, a sheriff’s department chief deputy.

Authorities received the report of a crash at 10 a.m. Wednesday at State Road 44 and Marietta Road, a rural intersection about 2 miles east of Shelbyville.

A white Chevrolet truck driven by Richard Bennett Jr., 51, of Franklin, was traveling east and went across the centerline and struck a dump truck driven by Timothy Reed, 47, of Hope.
