Rescue crew works on burnt wreckage of Dodge pick-up hit by semi truck, killing family of 5.

The following story occurred on June 26, 2009, but because of ongoing  interest in this story we have decided to publish it today.

Crown Point,  IN – A mother, father and their three children were killed early Friday on June 26th when their pick-up truck was pinned between two semis on I-65 near Crown Point, Indiana state police said.

The I-65 crash occurred just after 4 a.m. at the Crown Point exit as traffic backed up because a car was being towed from the interstate, state police said.

The flat-bed semi and Dodge pick-up truck, carrying a family of five were stopped, when a semi truck with double-box trailers came over a hill and could not stop in time. The semi hit the pick-up and pushed it into the back of the flat-bed setting the pick-up on fire which in turn spread to the semi that hit it.

The dead were identified as Brian W. Workman, 33, Joanna L. Workman, 31, Ashley Workman, 13, Tyler Workman, 8, and Ryan Workman, 1. All were from Hobart, Ind.

The family was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lake County Coroner’s office.  The driver of the semi escaped unharmed.
