Coroner’s office identifies 2 people killed after car plunges 4 stories from parking garage

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A man and woman in their 70s died after a car careened from a fourth-story parking garage and landed upside down in an Indianapolis alley.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 73-year-old Charles Hunt and 70-year-old Iristeen Hunt. Both were from University Park, Illinois. The coroner’s office said both victims died from multiple blunt force injuries and ruled their deaths accidental.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department. The car landed on its roof after falling from the Market Square Center Garage in the 200 block of East Market Street.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the crash occurred when the victims’ vehicle, a Lincoln MKX, struck the left rear corner of an unoccupied, parked vehicle before traveling about 20 feet, striking the parking garage wall and falling to the ground. Both the driver and passenger died in the fall.

IMPD said the crash was “not a criminal matter at this time.”
