On Wednesday Kosciusko County Sheriff's deputies responded to a singal vehicle crash on State Road 19, near Hepton Road.   They found a 2001 Pontiac Montana on its top on the west side of SR 19. 

The vehicle was traveling south bound on State Road 19 and was north of Hepton Rd.  From evidence at the scene it appears the vehicle ran off the west side of the roadway and struck a utility pole.  The vehicle then rolled over off the roadway ejecting the driver, Jessica Rodriguez, 23, of Milford.  The vehicle then rolled over Jessica Rodriguez pinning her under the van.  She was pronounced dead at the scene by the Kosciusko County Corners Office. 

There were three passengers in the vehicle with Jessica- her husband Miguel Rodriguez, 25, Ethan Rodriguez, 2, and Ciara Rodriguez, 3.  Miguel was in the front passenger seat and the two children were in the back seats.  All three of them were transported to Kosciusko Community Hospital where they were treated and released.
