INDIANAPOLIS (October 9, 2015) – A driver is in the hospital this morning after crashing into the tree of a front yard in the Meridian Hills neighborhood.

IMPD officers responded to several calls about a car accident near the intersection of 73rd St. and Holliday Dr. just after 3 a.m. Friday.

When officers arrived on scene, they found a vehicle had hit a tree in the front yard of a home in Meridian Hills.

Police say they suspect the driver was intoxicated and driving at a high rate of speed when they lost control of their vehicle.

Neighbors in the area tell us this is happening more regularly where 73rd St. curves between North Illinois St. and Spring Mill Rd.
