Two Semi-truck Drivers Die, and Another Trucker is Seriously Injured in a Fiery Crash on Interstate – 65 Near Scottsburg in Scott County, Austin, Indiana

Austin, Ind.— Two truck drivers lost their lives, and another suffered severe burns in a fiery collision involving three semitrailers. The incident happened Monday night on I-65 in Scott County.

According to police reports, a white Volvo semitrailer stopped in traffic due to construction. A second semitrailer slowed down behind the first truck; however, a third truck failed to stop and collided with the rear of the second truck, causing the second truck to slam into the back of the first.

The second and third semi-trucks erupted into flames, killing the second and third semi-truckers at the scene. A passenger in the third truck sleeper berth sustained severe burns and was airlifted to a hospital.

No further details have been provided.
