MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Dozens of relatives and friends gathered for a vigil honoring seven family members killed in highway construction zone crash in northwestern Indiana.
Mourners lit candles as darkness fell Monday evening and placed them around a fountain at the Merrillville restaurant where crash victim Lindsey Williams worked until recently.
The 27-year-old Williams and her 5- and 3-year-old daughters died in the crash last week on Interstate 65 about 30 miles south of Gary when a semitrailer slammed into their stopped SUV. Williams' sister, two young nieces and an uncle also died.
The Times of Munster reports restaurant owner Sharyl Gutierrez described Williams as a beautiful person who worked hard to get a license to become a bus driver for the Merrillville schools.
The Post-Tribune reports state police continue investigating the crash.
