Four adults and one teen from Beech Grove were killed in a violent crash on Interstate 65 in Kentucky on their way home from Florida Thursday night.
Six people were killed in a chain-reaction crash involving four vehicles - including two tractor-trailers - on an interstate highway in Kentucky, police said Friday.
KSP units arrived on scene at around 11:15 p.m.
A detour has been set up - redirecting people from Exit 28 N to 31-W.
KSP said a 2014 Volvo semi truck and trailer was heading north on I-65 when it hit a passenger vehicle.
We will continue to update this story as it develops.
The following occupants of one of the involved passenger vehicles, a 2007 Hyundai ENT van, died as a result of injuries suffered in the collision: Robert Hogan, 77, of Beech Grove, Indiana; Jonell Boster, 48, of Beech Grove; Lonnie Boster, 59, of Indianapolis; Carl Boster, 17, of Beech Grove; and Lonnie D. Boster, 30, of Indianapolis.
The names of involved parties and deceased persons have not been released due to pending notification to family members.
One tractor-trailer driver was treated at a hospital and released, and the other wasn't injured, Hodges said. Two of the deceased individuals have not yet been identified.
Kentucky State Police and the Warren County Coroner's Office are working diligently to make notifications and positive identities at the time of this release. A second commercial vehicle approached in the right lane, failing to stop for traffic, striking the trailing passenger vehicle, causing a chain reaction collision. Another northbound commercial vehicle failed to stop and struck the last auto in line triggering the chain reaction.
The sixth victim of the crash's identity will be released after their family is notified.
