Columbia City man dies in crash during Ireland vacation

COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana man and an Ohio woman who were vacationing in Ireland with their spouses have died in a car crash four days into their trip.

Relatives say 62-year-old James Baker of Columbia City, Indiana, died along with Peggy Adams of Delphos, Ohio, who was his cousin’s wife. The two cousins had left Friday with their wives for a long-planned trip to Ireland.

Baker’s daughter, Diana Baker, tells WANE-TV the two couples were traveling Monday along a busy highway near the Irish city of Cork when a truck crashed into their car as they made a turn.

James Baker and Peggy Adams were killed instantly and their spouses were injured. Baker’s wife, Deborah, suffered a collapsed lung and remains hospitalized. Adams’ husband, Jack, was treated and released.
