INDIANAPOLIS (WXIN) – A family of five was killed early Friday morning in a car crash in Tipton County. They were traveling back to their home in Arkansas from Michigan.
Investigators with the Indiana State Police say the 2001 Jaguar was hit by a semi truck on U.S. 31 near 250 South around 8:45 a.m. Friday. Two adults and two children died at the scene. The lone survivor was airlifted to Eskenazi Health in Indianapolis with life threatening injuries. She died Friday evening.
Investigators say the Jaguar was headed south on U.S. 31 and somehow lost control. The driver overcorrected, crossed the median and ended up on the other side of the road. State Police say a fully loaded semi truck, driven by William Stump of Carmel, moved to the shoulder to avoid the car, but couldn’t.
Two of the victims have been identified as 43-year-old Dennis Nguyen and 44-year-old Thu-Ha Thi Cao. Officers haven’t yet released the names of the children.
