HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Indiana State Police are investigating after a fatal crash that shut down the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 for two hours at mile marker 21 near Henryville.

According to Indiana State Police, the crash happened at 5:34 a.m. on June 17 when a blue Chrysler minivan with four people inside struck the rear of a tractor-trailer. ISP says their preliminary investigation shows the van was changing lanes at the time of the crash.

40-year-old Robert J. Kellen, a passenger in the minivan, was killed in the crash. The van's driver, 31-year-old Kristina Forester, refused medical treatment, and was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville with her two young children. Injuries to the children were not life-threatening. They have been treated and released.

The semi truck driver, 38-year-old Andrew Richter of Gaffney, SC, was not injured.

Trooper Thomas Basham said that even though one person was killed, the crash could have been worse since it happened during rush hour and could have led to a chain-reaction crash.

The van was headed to Columbus, Indiana.
