11 Killed When Truck, Church Van Crash In Kentucky

"A truck crossed a Kentucky interstate median yesterday and slammed head-on into a church van carrying a Mennonite family on its way to a wedding, killing 11 people. State Police Trooper Charles Swiney said two children survived the crash with the tractor-trailer on northbound Interstate 65. A pastor for the family in the van said they were Mennonites on their way to a wedding in Iowa. Authorities say the truck driver, who was from Alabama, was also killed. Officials say the tractor-trailer crossed the median and struck the van head-on around 5:30 a.m. near Munfordville, about 75 miles south of Louisville."
