Franklin woman killed in crash

Police are investigating a weekend crash on Interstate 65 that left a Franklin woman dead and sent eight people to area hospitals.

Dona Mann, 76, of Franklin, was killed in the crash, which occurred Saturday afternoon, according to an Indiana State Police news release.

Northbound traffic on I-65 near the Johnson and Shelby county line was moving slowly Saturday afternoon because another car had run off the road. Hector Avila, 49, of Indianapolis, wasn’t able to stop fast enough after traffic slowed, and he rear-ended Mann’s car with his box-truck.
