Crash kills Ind. man, hits family with 10 kids

Relatives and friends of a central Indiana man killed in a head-on collision are struggling to console his grieving wife and help care for her 10 children.
    
Thirty-seven-year-old Oscar Cardenas was one of two men killed in Wednesday's crash that devastated his large, close-knit family.
    
The sister of Cardenas' wife tells The Herald Bulletin (http://bit.ly/15Jw3DF ) Amalia Cardenas is "in a daze" and devastated by her husband's death.
    
Jo Dimas says friends and family are helping care for the couple's eight children and Amalia Cardenas' two other children from a previous relationship.
    
Eyewitnesses told police a car driven by a Muncie man crashed into a car carrying Cardenas and three others heading to a farm to help harvest tomatoes.
