Six Dead in Two I-65 Crashes Between Glendale and Sonora

A fiery crash between a semi-truck and a SUV resulted in the deaths of five people on I65 at the 83 mile-marker between Glendale and Sonora. Just a short 16 minutes later in the same area, another crash resulted in a 6th death.

Just after 11:00 a.m. Saturday morning, the semi hit a Ford Expedition, and the the smaller vehicle burst into flames, resulting in the terrible deaths.

Two children were injured in the crash, with one being taken to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, and the second was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

The second crash involved a tractor-trailer and three passenger vehicles. That was recorded as happening at 11:29 a.m.
