Trucker in Indiana crash that killed 3 won’t be charged

AUBURN, Ind. (AP): A prosecutor says a truck driver who caused a chain-reaction crash along a northeastern Indiana highway that killed a Michigan couple and another person will not face criminal charges in that crash.

DeKalb County Prosecutor ClaraMary Winebrenner, announced Tuesday 70-year-old James Crager did not see a line of traffic that was slowing or stopped for construction along Interstate 69 “until it was too late” for the Angola man to prevent his semi from crashing on Sept. 16th.

The (Auburn) Star reports that Winebrenner added that “inattentiveness alone is not a crime.”

The crash killed a Michigan couple and an Angola man, and injured five others.
