Seven family members killed in truck accident

Seven people were killed late last week when the van they were in hit a deer and then was rear-ended by a semi-trailer. Ten people, all extended family, were on their way to New Jersey for a funeral when the crash occurred on Interstate-90 in Bristol, Indiana.

No one in the van was wearing their seatbelts when the accident occurred. The deceased range in age from six weeks to 52 years-old. Only three survived, including the 30 year-old driver, a 36 year-old woman, and a 28 year-old man.

The 24 year-old truck driver, who works for the Wisconsin trucking company Roehl Transport Inc., was released from the hospital with minor injuries. No charges have currently be filed against him.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the victims.
