The truck collided with the Taurus driven by 39-year-old Tiana Caraway of Springville.

Tiana, who suffered a head injury, was unable to speak to police. She was taken flown by helicopter to a Louisville hospital.

Her passengers, a 2-year-old girl complained of body pain and a 10-year-old girl suffered severe bleeding to her head. The police report states one child was flown by helicopter to Riley Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment and the other was taken to IU Health Hospital for treatment.
