GOSHEN – A Millersburg woman is dead and a Noble County man in jail following a crash Friday morning between Millersburg and Goshen.

24-year-old Jennifer Myers died when her moped was struck from behind by a car driven by 29-year-old James Fugate of Wawaka.

The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department says Fugate was westbound on County Road 38 and told them he didn't see the westbound moped in time to avoid a collision.

An Elkhart County deputy and an off-duty firefighter arrived on the scene within moments of the 5:35 a.m. crash and attempted lifesaving measures but Myers died at the scene.

A helmet was found at the scene but it is unknown if Myers was wearing it at the time.

Deputies took Fugate into custody on a warrant for criminal conversion. Police say any additional charges depend on the outcome of their investigation. Witnesses and on-scene investigation pointed to speed as a possible factor.
