Pedestrian struck, killed on I-65 near northwest side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (December 26, 2014) – A pedestrian was struck and killed on I-65 early Friday morning.
The accident occurred just after 2:30 a.m. in the southbound lane at mile marker 123.6, just north of the exit 123 split to I-465.
Indiana State Police told FOX59 News crews on scene that they had received about four or five calls shortly after 2 a.m. from people who reported seeing a man walking in the I-65 lanes. As troopers headed to the area, reports came in about the crash.
Troopers said two vehicles were involved in the accident and both of those vehicles stayed at the scene to cooperate with police. The first car to strike the pedestrian ended up crashing into the wooded area off the roadway and sustaining heavy damage, police said. The second car did not have any damage, but informed troopers on scene that they too struck the pedestrian.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man as Ryan Miller, 37, Indianapolis. Police said it was unclear why Miller was in the middle of the road. Investigators didn’t find any disabled vehicles nearby.
