The crash occurred on a stretch of highway where traffic was congested due to road construction, police said.

Police say that two passenger vehicles and two semi-trucks were involved.

After an initial press release, two updates followed, but as of the latest one just before 9 a.m., two of the deceased individuals still had not been identified. "A second commercial vehicle approached in the right lane, failing to stop for traffic, striking the trailing passenger vehicle, causing a chain-reaction collision". No further details are available at this time.

It happened near mile marker 30 around 10:30 p.m.

Five of the people killed were in a van, while the other victim was in the other passenger vehicle, said state police Trooper Jeremy Hodges.
