(Newser) – At least 11 people died in a fiery crash between a tractor-trailer and a church van early this morning on Interstate 65 in south-central Kentucky. A southbound semi-truck is said to have crossed the median near Munfordville, about 75 miles south of Louisville, and plowed into the van, which was carrying 18 Mennonites. The driver was killed, along with passengers in the van; at least one of the vehicles burst into flames, MSNBC reports.
