SPICELAND, Ind. - Two people were killed and their 14-year-old granddaughter was seriously injured in a crash in Henry County on Saturday.
Just after noon Saturday, Henry County Sheriff's deputies responded to a collision between two cars and two semi-trucks on westbound I-70 near the 123 mile marker.
According to deputies, John and Sylvia Shaw of Burlington, Minn., were riding in a Toyota that was struck from behind by a semi driven by an Indianapolis man.
The impact pushed the Shaws' car into the vehicle in front of them, which then struck another semi.
The Shaws were pronounced dead at the scene. Their 14-year-old granddaughter, who was also in the vehicle, was airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children with serious injuries.
I-70 was closed for about three hours in the area while crews cleaned up debris from the collision.
Police said no criminal charges have been filed, though a blood draw was conducted on the driver of the semi.
