INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Firefighters with the Indianapolis Fire Department extricated two people from their car Wednesday morning following a crash on Interstate 70 on the near east side.
Crews responded to the crash at the Rural Street and Keystone Avenue exit around 6:19 a.m. Officials said two people were trapped in their vehicle after it was rear-ended by another car.
The people rescued were transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
The driver of the other vehicle, a Jeep Wrangler, told authorities he believed the Dodge Stratus was stopped or moving extremely slowly in the outside lane of I-70. The Jeep’s driver said he switched lanes so he could exit the highway, but before he knew it, the Stratus was in his path.
Indiana State Police continue to investigate.
