RISING SUN, Ind. -- A 19-year-old Vevay woman was killed in a crash on State Road 56 near Rising Sun Tuesday night.

Lauren M. Rose was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Impala northbound on SR 56 near Henschen Road at about 10:40 p.m. when a southbound driver in a 2014 Dodge Journey crossed the center line and the vehicles collided, Indiana State Police said in a news release.

Rose was driven to Highpoint Health in Lawrenceburg, where she died from injuries she suffered in the crash.

An 18-year-old passenger in Rose's vehicle was treated at Highpoint for minor injuries. A 15-year-old passenger riding in the Journey was transported to a Cincinnati-area hospital for treatment of serious injuries, and an 8-year-old passenger was driven to Highpoint for minor injuries.

The road was closed for more than two hours for the investigation and cleanup. 

The driver of the Journey submitted to a blood test for intoxication, police said. Results are pending.
