   Deputy Sheriff Noah Rainey was killed in a single-vehicle accident while responding to assist a Rossville deputy town marshal on a traffic stop on State Road 26 just east of County Road 200 East after a brief pursuit.

   He was driving eastbound, with an off-duty jail officer in the passenger seat, on State Road 26 approaching Washington Street, in Clinton County, when their patrol car left the south side of the roadway and struck a utility pole.

   Both Deputy Rainey and the 23-year-old male jail officer suffered blunt force trauma and were pronounced dead at the scene.

   Deputy Sheriff Rainey, from Delphi, had previously served as a reserve deputy with the department for one year after having served as a correctional officer with the Indiana Department of Correction at the Plainfield Correctional Facility in Plainfield for one year and as jail deputy with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department for two years.

   He was survived by his wife, Maria (née Salter); sons, Easton and Nicholas; mother, Victoria (Tim) (née Martin) Hobbs; and brothers, Matthew (Victoria) Welborn, Vincent Martin, Zach Hobbs, Adam Hobbs and Eli Rainey.
