LAFAYETTE, Ind.—Authorities say two people are dead following a five-vehicle crash involving four trucks and a car along Interstate 65 in northern Indiana.
Police say a truck driven by a Michigan man was stopped for a crash Tuesday near Lafayette in Tippecanoe County and a truck pulling a flatbed driven by a man from Sherman, Illinois, was stopped behind him along with a car.
Police say a box truck driven by 62-year-old man from Florissant, Missouri, was slowing when a truck pulling a car hauler approached. Police say the 31-year-old driver of that truck, who is from Plainfield, Indiana, apparently didn’t see the stopped traffic.
