driver stopped at Wal Mart and went inside.

Police say Schindler got behind the wheel of the 2007 Mini Cooper....and took off.....

A short time later....she was across the center line when striking head on

a vehicle stopped to make a lefthand turn in the 300 block of E. Lincolnway.

Police say Schindler was unresponsive and airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with

internal injuries.

She died the next day.

The driver she hit was Barbara O'Drobinak of Whiting.

She was taken by ambulance complaining of pain to her legs and back.
