Republic Congresswoman Jackie Walorski served as a U.S. representative for Indiana’s congressional district for eight years. A sponsor of Indiana’s Voter ID law was one of the prominent voices of the state. Now we have tragic news to report.

According to TMZ, Congresswoman Walorski was killed in a car crash in her home state of Nappanee, Indiana. The accident is said to have claimed three other lives, who all were riding in the Congresswoman’s SUV.

The report noted that the driver of the other car, a 56-year-old woman, crashed head-on into Warlorski’s SUV. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The report also noted that the driver was the only person in the car at the time.

The Congresswoman’s death has sent shockwaves in Washington. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg shared his reaction to the tragic news on Twitter. Buttigieg said that he was “shocked and sadden” to hear of the Congresswoman’s sudden death.

I’m shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and the other victims of this terrible crash.

Though we came from very different places politically, she was always prepared to work together where there was common ground, always decent and straightforward, and she cared deeply about her work and her constituents.

Congresswoman Walorski voted against the Articles of Impeachment in the 2021 Impeachment of former President Donald Trump. She also served on the Family, Children, & Human Affairs and the Public Policy committees.
