ROSELAWN, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana woman whose two grandchildren were among seven people killed in a fiery crash in a highway construction zone says she can't believe the youngsters and their mother are gone.

Merrillville resident Veronica Goldman-House tells the Post-Tribune (http://bit.ly/16um6QK ) that since Thursday night's deadly crash she feels like she's in "a dream or something you can't wake up from."

Five-year-old Yazmin Goldman and 3-year-old Arielle Goldman died along with their mother, 27-year-old Lindsey Williams, when a semitrailer slammed into their SUV stopped in an Interstate 65 construction zone. Four other people riding in the SUV, including the siblings' aunt and two cousins, also died.

The impact pushed the SUV into a semitrailer in front of it and ignited a fire that engulfed the SUV and damaged both semitrailers.
