NEW CASTLE (AP) — Authorities say a Minnesota couple was killed and their 13-year-old granddaughter seriously injured in an accident on Interstate 70 near New Castle.
Henry County Sheriff's Deputy Landon Dean says Sylvia Shaw and John Shaw, both 66 and from New Brighton, Minnesota, died when their sport utility vehicle was struck from behind by a semi-tractor trailer and pushed into the back of another semi-tractor trailer and another vehicle.
Dean says traffic was slowing for construction work when the accident occurred about 12:15 p.m. Saturday. Dean says the investigation into the crash continues.
Dean says the teenager was listed in stable condition Sunday in the intensive care unit at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis with a broken hip, arm and leg. He says her parents are with her.
