DALEVILLE, Ind. - A 4-year-old girl has died and six other people have been injured in a crash that shut down Interstate 69 between Anderson and Muncie.
Indiana State Police say the girl, Tavionna Ford of Indianapolis, wasn't in a child seat before the crash Tuesday near Daleville, about 40 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
Troopers say a car driven by the girl's grandmother, 41-year-old Donna Randolph of Indianapolis, stopped in the northbound right lane and a pickup driven by 72-year-old Harold Shemberger Jr. of Luther, Michigan, rear-ended it.
Troopers say a second child and an adult from Randolph's car were airlifted to Indianapolis hospitals. Both drivers and two others also were injured.
The crash closed all lanes of the highway for about two hours and northbound lanes for an additional 90 minutes.
