The semi-truck struck a passenger vehicle, which was stationary in the right lane of travel, causing a chain reaction collision involving one additional passenger vehicle and one additional commercial vehicle. Sowell was treated and released from an area hospital.

Both passenger vehicles and the additional semi-truck were all stationary in traffic in the right travel lane, prior to the collision. The following occupants of one of the involved passenger vehicles, a 2007 Hyundai ENT van, have died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision:

Robert Hogan, Beech Grove, Indiana, 77, (deceased).

Jonell Boster, Beech Grove, Indiana, 48, (deceased).

Lonnie Boster, Indianapolis, Indiana, 59, (deceased).

Carl Boster, Beech Grove, Indiana, 17, (deceased).

Lonnie D. Boster, Indianapolis, Indiana, 30, (deceased).

A juvenile passenger in the Hyundai ENT van has been admitted to Vanderbilt University Hospital for treatment of serious injuries sustained in the collision.

The operator of the second involved passenger vehicle’s name is currently being withheld, pending death notification to family members.

Keith Vickers, 64, of Hamden, Ohio was operating the second involved commercial vehicle, a 2016 Freightliner, and did not report any injury on scene. There are no further updates at this time.
