Three Killed In Car Accident On I-65

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say three people
have died in a car accident on Interstate 65 near Bonnieville.

Police say 41-year-old driver Amparo Zamora and her passengers,
19-year-old Henry Araneibia and 15-year-old Lea E. Osorio, were
killed in the wreck Monday night. All three are from Indianapolis.

Authorities say the car was traveling north on I-65 in rainy
conditions when the car slid, crossed the median and entered the
southbound lane when it was struck by an oncoming tractor trailer.

The driver of the tractor trailer, James Willie Thompson, was
not injured.

    I just want to say how much I enjoy the Morning Show. I am recently retired but I still get up early so I can get my "Barbara and Bill" fix. You are wonderful pair of anchors. Oh, and don't forget Chris and/or T.G. and the weather lady. I love WKYT, especially Bill Bryant! Keep up the good work.

    We saw this coming home from Indiana last night. I think it had just happened, I'm not sure. There was a body out of the car with a sheet over it and they were using the Jaws of Life in the back seats. The front of the van was absolutely demolished. We saw the Tyson (I think) truck on the other side, (edited) but I don't know who that belonged to if there was only a 15 year old and a 19 year old. I just cannot describe how that van looked, and the semi as well - we could tell it was head-on because both front ends were just GONE. Very sad, would like to have known more though.

    Everyone is bashing "terrified‘s" comment, but this person has a point. First of all, if you read carefully it didn't seem that he or she was blaming the truck driver, (it does clearly state that the car lost control and was at fault) just saying that tractor trailers can be very dangerous to cars. If an accident between a tractor trailer and a car occurs, the person or persons in the car will most likely be killed or maimed. The point is that tractor trailers are huge and therefore cause tremendous damage during a crash. Honestly, that can't be disputed. Also, in some of the more populated areas of the country, they do have separate truck lanes. These lanes keep traffic flowing more smoothly and decrease the risk of a major traffic congestion that would occur if an accident between a tractor trailer and car were to happen. When they wreck, often due to the fault of a car, the highway shuts down.

    terrified! are you stupid?! you think there should be seperate lanes built for semi trucks, now thats funny. usually is the fauld of the passenger car driver when an accident happens. understand terrified! these trucks are the back bone to our country, read the news story, the car went out of control, probley because of high speed. get ediots in passenger cars off the road!

    Just like so many people today, Terrified!, let's put the responsibility on someone else. How was this in any way the trucks fault? The driver of the CAR lost control and hit the truck. Maybe the evil vortex around the truck sucked the car in to destroy it. Or, um, perhaps the driver of car was going to fast for the conditions and lost control.

    it was not the truckers fault. it planly stated that the lady,crossed the median into oncoming traffic, so don't blame the other driver, it is a shame that it happened, but give the man a break!
  • by Pam Location: Irvine on Mar 4, 2008 at 08:00 AM
    Didn't it say that the car went out of control and then INTO THE PATH of a semi? So, how on earth is it the semi's fault? If the car had spun out of control and into the path of another car what would have happened - probably everyone in both vehicles would have died. It was an accident, not the fault of a semi. Good grief.

    Typical, the man driving the truck was minding his own business doing nothing wrong and it is his fault? It is an absolute tragedy that this happened but it would be foolish to think that if the minivan hit a car instead of a truck that the outcome would have been different, a 65- 70 mph head on collision is going to end the same way no matter what the vehicles are

    Get these monsters off the same roads as passenger vehicles!! It's like humans living with dinosours--it wouldn't have worked and this doesn't work now. No one has a chance when hit by a semi, no matter whos fault it is! Build truck lanes on our interstates, it's already been done in many other metropolitan areas!!! Expensive? Yes! But isn't even one life saved worth it?? It should be!!!
