INDIANAPOLIS – A man sought for questioning in connection with a fatal crash in the Castleton area has turned himself in.

Indianapolis Metropolitan police said Seantel Marsden, 41, is being interviewed at IMPD Headquarters.

The Saturday morning crash killed 29-year-old Rashaad Artis and injured 33-year-old Shanntel Lewis, Marsden’s ex-girlfriend. She said she crashed when she tried to get away from Marsden.

Lewis said Marsden followed her from a northeast side home late Friday night to the 6000 block of East 82nd Street. Lewis didn’t know if Marsden’s truck hit her car or if she lost control of her vehicle as she went across a median and hit another car head-on just west of the Castleton Square Mall around 12:40 a.m. Saturday.

The passengers in the other car, Kyle Gertz, 31, and Tara Bain, 40, were injured. Bain’s unborn child was not hurt. Artis, who was with Lewis, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found Marsden’s truck on Sunday, but couldn’t locate the man and asked the public for help finding him.

Records showed Lewis and Marsden had trouble before. In June, 2011, Lewis received a protective order against Marsden after she told police he broke into her home.

Several months later, Marsden was stopped in the 4500 block of Allisonville Road as another ex-girlfriend told police he was chasing her down in his vehicle.

Police aren’t calling Marsden a suspect in the case, but said they wanted to question him about the crash and the circumstances leading up to it.
