CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (WKRN) — Investigators say an Indiana man, his daughter and granddaughter were all killed in a crash last week on the Pennyrile Parkway in Christian County, Kentucky.

The crash involving two passenger vehicles and a semi tractor-trailer happened around 5 a.m. Friday near mile marker three.

The Christian County Sheriff’s Office reported a 72-year-old woman from Evansville, Indiana was driving southbound on the Pennyrile Parkway, when her vehicle slammed into the back of a semi, causing her vehicle to flip multiple times.

Following the crash, investigators said the vehicle was in the roadway with no lights on, when another passing vehicle slammed into it.

Three passengers in the 72-year-old woman’s vehicle were killed. A crash report identified them as the woman’s 76-year-old husband, Doug Euler, their 46-year-old daughter, Kimberly Haley and the couple’s 25-year-old granddaughter, Jennifer Hoffman.

The 72-year-old driver was transported to Jennie Stuart Hospital with critical injuries, authorities said.
