Former Purdue Basketball player killed In Crash on I-65

The crash involved semis and a car.

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. -- A former Purdue basketball player was one of two people killed in a chain-reaction crash involving multiple semis on I-65 near Lafayette on Tuesday. 

Indiana State Police say Marvin Rae and his passenger, Kelli Nicole Bradley, were stopped in construction zone traffic on I-65 on Tuesday when their car was hit from behind and pushed under a flatbed truck.  

Both were pronounced dead at the scene. 

Purdue Men's Basketball tweeted their condolences Wednesday afternoon.  

Rea played basketball at Purdue University under Gene Keady from 1987-1989. 

Rea was also the current head coach of the Lighthouse boys basketball team in Gary this year.
