A Sunday night crash on I-70 leaves one person dead and three others fighting for their lives.

It happened just before 7:00 last night near the 12 mile marker, just west of State Road 46. Police say two semis were stalled on the highway and a wrecker was working to get them moved. As traffic was slowing down and merging for those stalled semis, another semi crashed into the back of a pickup truck, shoving it into the back of another pickup and that sent both pick-up trucks into one of the stopped trucks on the side of the road. A female driver of one of the pickups died at the scene while her passenger was taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with life threatening injuries.

Names have not been released but it is believed that they are from Kansas. The male driver and his wife in the other pickup are from Anderson, Indiana and were both taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with life threatening injuries.
