JASPER COUNTY — An accident involving a chemical tanker truck on I-65 led to a second accident that took the lives of three members of a Jasper County family — a local doctor and two children.
According to Indiana State Police, Dr. Mallik Chaganti, 45, of Rensselaer along with two of his children, a son and daughter, whose identities have not been released, were killed in the accident. One other child in the vehicle was injured and taken to a hospital.
Dr. Chaganti was a popular physician in the area serving at the Clinic of Family Medicine in Rensselaer. Those who knew Dr. Chaganti said his presence will be missed by many, not only in the medical field, but also throughout the community.
