NBC News reports:

Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., and two of her staffers were killed in a car accident on Wednesday, authorities said. Walorski was 58.

Walorski District Director Zachery Potts, 27, and her Communications Director Emma Thomson, 28, also died in the two-car accident. Their deaths were confirmed by the sheriff’s office in a Facebook post. “A northbound passenger car traveled left of center and collided head on” with Walorski’s vehicle, the sheriff’s office wrote. The driver of that car was also killed.

A former Indiana state lawmaker, Walorski was first elected to Congress in 2012 and was running for her sixth term this fall. She was well-liked by her Republican and Democratic colleagues in the House, where she was close to McCarthy and his leadership team.

What a terrible tragedy. So many lives were lost in an instant. We should all use this as a reminder to tell our loved ones we love them every single day. Do you do that?
