Yogurt truck causes chain-reaction crash, killing six in upstate New York

Six people were killed and one was injured Thursday morning when a tractor trailer carrying yogurt rear-ended a vehicle that had slowed for construction work, causing a chain reaction.

Five of the victims died when their SUV caught fire after being hit. Trooper Jack Keller told The Associated Press that the driver of the first vehicle struck died at a hospital.

The tractor-trailer driver, James A. Mills Jr. of Myerstown, Pa., was taken to a hospital for treatment, the AP said.
