Former Anderson residents killed in South Bend crash

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A South Bend couple and a cousin from Anderson who had recently moved in with them were killed Sunday when their SUV collided with a van and a pickup.

Police say 59-year-old driver Robert Hillers of South Bend, 54-year-old Judith Hillers and their cousin, 56-year-old Janice Cash, died in the crash Sunday afternoon on U.S. 31 a few miles south of South Bend. 

Judith (Myers) Hillers and Cash grew up in Anderson. Both of them graduated from Madison Heights High School, according to one of Hillers' three daughters, Johnna Segner of South Bend. Cash moved to South Bend in June.

Police say a minivan driven by 17-year-old Carlos Rios-Sanchez of South Bend went left of center and struck the SUV, which spun and was struck on the side by the pickup driven by 29-year-old Kelly Carlson of Sparta, Mich.

St. Joseph County Sheriff Mike Grzegorek said that Rios-Sanchez was hospitalized with serious injuries. Carlson was treated at the scene. According to the South Bend Tribune, the crash is still being investigated.

The Hillerses, who were going to California for vacation, and Cash were en route to the Indianapolis airport when the accident happened.

Funeral services for the Hillerses will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Chapel in Granger, with visitation from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday at Hahn Funeral Home in Mishawaka.

Memorial arrangements for Cash are being handled by Brown-Butz-Diedring Funeral Home in Anderson. She is survived by a 16-year-old son, Stone Cash.
