Four Killed In I-71 Crash

Investigators are trying to identify four people killed in a fiery crash along Interstate 71 in Henry County.

State police say a passenger car traveling southbound crossed the median and came into the path of a semi just before 9:00 p.m. Sunday.

All four people killed were inside the car.
The coroner says he believes the victims were two men and two women in their late teens or early 20's.

The driver of the semi wasn't injured.

The Henry County coroner tells 27 NEWSFIRST it will be a difficult task to identify the victims. He'll use dental records to make a positive identification.

Right now, he's waiting for someone to be reported missing to figure out their identities.

    The four in the car were from Nashille. Four teenagers, four families devestated. The four were coming back from Kentucky after they spent a last weekend together before going off to four different colleges next week.
