Funeral Services Held For I-65 Crash Victims
August 23, 2013 — MUNSTER — Pictures of birthday parties and other family events flashed on screens at a Lake County church during funeral services for the seven family members killed in an I-65 construction zone crash in Jasper County.
Hundreds attended Thursday’s service at Family Christian Center in Munster for the three adults and four children who died when a semitrailer slammed into their stopped SUV.
Cousin James Torres said relatives decided to wear colors rather than black to be joyful. Remembrances were read about all seven victims.
Killed in the crash were sisters 35-year-old Yvette Williams of Atlanta, Ga., and 27-year-old Lindsey Williams of Merrillville; their uncle 49-year-old Amado Mangual of Merrillville; and the women’s children, 5-year-old Yazmin Goldman, 3-year-old Arielle Goldman, 5-year-old Jamin Osborne and 7-year-old Jasmin Osborne.
