 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A Michigan trucking company involved in a crash that left six people dead on Interstate 65 in central Kentucky over the weekend had a satisfactory rating from the federal agency that oversees long-haul carriers.

 
   The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration based its ranking of Highway Star Inc., on a 24-month span in which the company fell below the national average of vehicle problems.
 
   A tractor-trailer driven by 47-year-old Ibrahim Fetic of Troy, Mich., hit an SUV carrying a family back to Wisconsin from a vacation in Florida on Saturday. Fetic and two children in the SUV survived the crash.
 
   The wreck also set off a four-vehicle collision on the other side of the interstate. Police say 36-year-old Gregg Lohman, the drummer for country music singer Kellie Pickler, remained hospitalized Monday.
