By WLOX Staff

BATON ROUGE, LA (WLOX) - A Louisiana grand jury has declined to indict the truck driver who was involved in a chain-reaction crash that killed three members of a Vancleave family.

The July 2008 crash on I-12 in Baton Rouge killed 36-year-old Phillip Van Alstine, his 34-year-old wife Shyla, and their 7-year-old daughter, Haylie. Their 4-year-old daughter was severely injured.

Troopers said the driver of the 18-wheeler rear-ended a vehicle, which then slammed into the Van Alstine's van.
