fire truck and ambulance at crash sceneTONOPAH, AZ - A woman and her five children were killed, and five other people were hospitalized after a semi-truck careened into a disabled vehicle on I-10 Friday afternoon.

According to CBS 5, the crash happened in the interstate’s eastbound lanes at about 1:20 p.m. The driver of a Nissan Altima was stopped to fix a tire when a semi-truck slammed into the rear of the Nissan, nearly splitting it in half. The female driver and her five children all suffered fatal injuries as a result.

The truck continued traveling before crashing into an SUV, injuring another woman and her four children. They were all taken to area hospitals in serious condition.

The truck driver was not hurt in the collision. It remains unclear if that individual will face any charges as a result of the fatal crash.
