INDIANAPOLIS — A person is dead following a serious accident on I-465 northbound Saturday evening on the city’s northeast side.
ISP said the accident included a total of five vehicles and resulted in the three right lanes on I-465 northbound being closed north of E. 56th St. A driver and passenger in another car were transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
A preliminary investigation into the crash revealed that the driver of a passenger car was traveling northbound on I-465 when they attempted to change lanes while passing through a construction zone where four northbound lanes split.
Three right lanes and a single left lane are divided by a crash attenuator in that area, which ISP said the driver struck when attempting to change lanes.
The vehicle then collided with four other vehicles during the collision. The driver of the vehicle that struck the attenuator was pronounced deceased at the scene.
On Tuesday, May 2, the Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the driver as 39-year-old Jordan Trey Taylor.
The right three lanes remain closed while the left lane is open. ISP confirmed that all lanes should be open by 11 p.m.
