JASPER CO., Ind. (WLFI) – The Jasper County Coroner’s office has released the names of the people killed in a crash on Interstate 65 Monday.

They said Dr. Mallik Chaganti and two of his children, 14-year-old Anusha and 9-year-old Vivek, died in the crash.

The coroner says a third child in the car was taken to a hospital and then transferred to Loyola in Chicago.

As News 18 reported Tuesday, State police said Chaganti rear-ended a semi truck that had slowed down for backed up traffic due to an earlier crash.
