A 42-year-old Crawfordsville man and his 10-year-old son were killed Saturday afternoon after rear-ending a semi.

Max Bruner II, his 9-year-old daughter Sabrina , 3-year-old son Max Bruner III and 10-year-old son Bradley were travelling on I-74 eastbound near the Waynetown exit when  Bruner failed to slow down and hit the rear of the semi truck.

The semi was driven by 46-year-old Ruben W. Carter Jr from Goldsboro, North Carolina.

State Police say Bradley was only wearing his lap belt and not the shoulder harness. He and Bruner were pronounced dead at the scene.

Daughter Sabrina had to be extricated and was airlifted to Riley Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Younger son Max III was taken to Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Crawfordsville with minor injuries.

Carter was not injured; there is approximately $20,000 in damages to the flat-bed.
