Al-Rabba, 36, of Michigan, was one of several vehicles stopped for a separate crash on Interstate 65 near Lafayette in Tippecanoe County. Another semi-truck driven by Karl E. Klinge, 54 of Sherman, Ind. and a 2006 red Cadillac CTS were stopped behind Al-Rabba, police said, and a box truck driven by Joseph Gais, 62, of Florissant, Mo. was slowing down as he approached the stopped vehicles. Police said the crash occurred Anthony J. Dick, 31, of Plainfield, Ind., the driver of another semi-truck, apparently was distracted and did not see that traffic had come to a stop. This caused him to slam into the back of the box truck and set off a chain reaction of collisions. The impact of the two trucks pushed the CTS underneath Klinge's flatbed in front of it, killing both occupants. Marvin L. Rea, 49, and Kelli Nicole Bradley, 34, both from Gary, Ind. have been identified as the deceased. Gais and Dick were both transported to UI Arnett Hospital with minor injuries. Neither Al-Rabba nor Klinge were injured, police said. An investigation is ongoing.
