Multiple fatality crash closes part of I-65 near Bowling Green

A young child in that van was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries but is expected to survive.

Two cars and two commercial vehicles were involved, and six people died.

Four of the six victims in the fatal crash Thursday night on I-65 were members of a Beech Grove, Ind. family, and a fifth was a family friend, according to Warren County Coroner Kevin Kirby. That caused a chain reaction collision involving one additional passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle, according to KSP. The passenger vehicle was stationary in the right lane of travel.

The operator of the second involved passenger vehicle's name is now being withheld, pending death notification to family members. Two of the deceased individuals have not yet been identified.

Police say the stretch of I-65 was under construction and the roadway merges from three lanes to two.

The Kentucky State Police say five of the people killed are from Beech Grove.

Troopers and commercial vehicle officers remained at the scene as of 2:30 a.m. conducting preliminary investigation, Hodges said. No further details are available for release at this time, with updates to follow.

All lanes of northbound I-65 were closed for hours in the area of the crash but have been reopened.
