ROBERT- A one-year-old was killed when an 18-wheeler slammed into a car on the shoulder of I-12 Monday.

Another child was hurt along with two adults. Everyone involved was from out-of-town.

State Police say the truck driver lost control and smashed into the car. The car spun around, crossed the highway, and ended up in the median.

"Driver inattention is suspected to be the primary factor leading to the events of the crash," a State Police spokesperson said.

The driver of the semi faces charges of careless operation, 3 counts of negligent injuring, and 1 count of negligent homicide.
