Six people were killed in a horrific crash involving two tractor-trailers and two passengers vehicles on a Kentucky highway.

Five of the victims were in one of the passenger vehicles, the Bowling Green Daily News reported Friday. There was also a 4-year-old boy in the vehicle who was injured and air lifted to the hospital in serious condition.

The sixth fatality was the driver of the second passenger vehicle.

Members of the Boster family of Beech Grove, Ind. were confirmed as four of the victims Friday by Warren County Coroner Kevin Kirby.

Lonny D. Boster, 59, his wife Jonell Boster, 48, their sons Lonny D. Boster Jr., 30, and Carl Boster, 17, were killed in the crash, as was family friend Robert Hogan, 74. They were a few hours from home after a Florida vacation, according to long-time family friend Lisa Sommerville of Southport, Ind.

“This was the first vacation they had taken in years,” she said.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeremy Hodges says the accident happened just after 10:30 p.m. on I-65 near Bowling Green at a spot where road construction was taking place.

The highway also merges from three lanes to two at that spot.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges had been filed as of Friday afternoon, Hodges said.

One of the vehicles was pinned beneath a semi, Hodges said.

The Daily News reported that one semi was stopped in the right lane with the two passenger vehicles stopped behind it. A second semi traveling in the same lane failed to stop. It struck the trailing passenger vehicle, causing a chain-reaction.

All lanes of I-65 northbound were closed at Exit 28 for several hours, the paper reported.

So tragic. Our deepest condolences go out to everyone involved.

God Bless.
