Friday, 24 Jul 2015 06:54 AM

Indiana State Police say five people were killed in a seven-vehicle crash on Interstate 65 near Lafayette.

Sgt. Kim Riley says the crash happened in a construction zone just before midnight Thursday when a semi rear-ended another vehicle, causing a chain reaction and igniting a fire.

Riley says three of those killed were in a minivan. The driver of the semi that caused the crash was also killed along with a driver in another vehicle. One other person was injured.

Riley says the highway was still closed in both directions Friday morning as authorities cleared the scene and investigated the crash.
