Indy woman killed in Saturday semi-car accident

An Indianapolis woman was killed in an I-74 chain reaction accident Saturday.


The Shelby County Sheriff’s Department says Shawn Waggoner, of Freetown, was driving a semi eastbound on I-74 at about the 105 mile marker.  Waggoner’s semi ran into a vehicle stopped in traffic with the construction.  That vehicle was driven by William Gibbs, of Indianapolis.  A passenger in the Gibbs’ vehicle, Jacquelin Jones-Gibbs, 66, of Indianapolis, died of her injuries at an Indianapolis hospital.


Six vehicles were involved in the crash which closed the interstate while emergency and clean-up crews were at the location.
