INDIANAPOLIS – A patient hurt in Sunday’s deadly church van crash has been released from Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

The hospital confirmed the news Monday afternoon. Everyone treated at Riley has now been sent home.

Thirteen patients were taken to the hospital after police say a car driven by Brandon Collins, 26, ran a red light and slammed into the church vehicle. The driver of the church van, 51-year-old Edward Sadler, was killed in the crash, which happened around 8 p.m. at Emerson Avenue and 46th Street. Eighteen people were on the Jesus House of Prayer van.

Preliminary charges against Collins include failure to stop after a crash causing injury or death and operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing serious injury or death. Both are class B felonies.
