Family, friends, and colleagues in both Washington D.C. and Indiana are mourning the loss of Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN).
Walorski and two of her staff members were killed this week in a car crash in Elkhart County, Indiana. The driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash was also killed.
Walorski’s staff members were Emma Thomson, who handled communications, and Zachery Potts, who was her in-district director.
While the investigation into the collision by Elkhart County Police is still ongoing, initial reports from the Sheriff’s Department stated that the second vehicle crossed over the center line and hit Walorski’s car head on. The South Bend Tribune reports that police now say it was Walorski’s car that crossed the center line.
