INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — IMPD accident investigators are looking into what caused a fatal crash that happened late Wednesday night.

Just before 11 p.m. officers were dispatched to the intersection of West 10th Street and Whitcomb Avenue on reports of a serious accident involving a red truck and black car.

Responding officers arrived and immediately began rendering aid to all involved. EMS transported a passenger of the black car to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition, where he later died. The two drivers were transported to area hospitals in good condition.

Investigators believe that the red truck was traveling west on 10th Street when the black car, traveling east on 10th Street, turned in front of the red truck to go north on Whitcomb Avenue. The red truck was unable to avoid the collision and struck the black car. Investigators do not believe intoxication to be a factor.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or others is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317)262-TIPS(8477).
