October 21, 2013 — Investigators say an argument between a Hammond couple resulted in a fatality this weekend on eastbound Interstate 80/94 just east of Indianapolis Boulevard.

Indiana state troopers say that 21-year-old Shawna Popenhagen was driving her Toyota Saturday when her passenger, 21-year-old Joshua Walberg, grabbed the steering wheel. The car spun into the path of an on-coming charter bus and was hit head-on.

All 39 people on the bus escaped injury, but Popenhagen was seriously hurt, and Wahlberg died at the scene.  He was not wearing a seat belt.
