14-year-old girl dies from injuries sustained in I-465 crash on east side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A 14-year-old girl has succumbed to the injuries she sustained in a two-vehicle crash on the east side Saturday.
Rosie Amis did not have a pulse when first responders arrived to the crash just north of I-70 just after 3 p.m. She was revived on the scene and then transported to Methodist Hospital in critical condition, where she later died.
The teen was a passenger in a Chevy Cobalt driven by 28-year-old Stanton M. Bowie Jr. According to a preliminary investigation, the Cobalt became sideways in the path of a Honda Odyssey van driven by 43-year-old Louise Traficanti. The van then struck the Cobalt in the passenger side door where Amis was seated.
Bowie Jr. was also critically injured in the crash. He was transported to Eskenazi. Traficanti and the other three passengers were not transported for injuries.
Evidence located at the scene of the Cobalt and personal observations by investigating officers indicated that alcohol may be a factor in this crash.
Authorities say a blood draw warrant was requested and issued for Bowie Jr. The results are pending and Bowie Jr. has not been arrested.
Two dogs were located running loose at the scene of the crash and both have been recovered by animal control. Investigators are trying to determine if the dogs were in the roadway prior to the crash.
The interstate was opened back up around 5:20 p.m. Saturday.
