Summary: second-grade student at Mattoon Elementary School in Illinois who had been involved in a fiery four-vehicle trailer-tractor collision with country music star Kellie Pickler's drummer Gregg Lohmann (who is listed in serious condition) when a sport-utility vehicle she was riding in was reportedly rear-ended by a semi-truck in the northbound lanes at a busy expressway and killed her foster parents James and Barbara Gollnow, their adopted daughter Sereena Gollnow, and another foster child identified as 10-year-old Gabriel Zuniga-DeBaere in at least two separate car accidents that happened within minutes at the same spot in central Kentucky's Interstate 65 highway as the family were returning home from a vacation in Florida at the time, in which a trucking company involved in the horrific pileup crash had accumulated at least 17 traffic violations within over two years before the fatal accident occurred.
