A New Jersey family of five, including four children, were killed in an auto accident in Delaware, according to state police. One adult was taken to an area hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
According to police, a southbound pickup truck crossed the median and struck a northbound vehicle. That vehicle came to rest in the median, while the pickup continued traveling in the wrong direction down the highway before being struck by a minivan carrying the New Jersey family.
An investigation is still underway. The crash has also raised questions about the need to install guardrails.
