A van overloaded with 24 people headed to a factory overturned on an interstate in Indiana on Thursday, killing one passenger and injuring all of the others, authorities said. Sgt. Bruce Vanoven of the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office said the driver lost control of the 16-passenger van after the right rear passenger tire had a blowout. "The tire was just completely obliterated," he said. No other vehicles were involved, he said. The van was headed on Interstate 69 from the Washington area in southwestern Indiana, about 30 miles northeast of the crash, to a factory in Evansville, about 20 miles to the southwest, Vanoven said.
