INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 9, 2014) -- A woman is dead and her husband is in serious condition at Eskenazi Hospital after a motorcycle accident on the southeast side, Saturday.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says the crash happened at the corner of Southeastern Ave. and Acton Rd. just before 11 a.m. Detectives say it appears the driver of a gold Honda Accord turned in front of the motorcycle, and the two collided. Police say Teresa Wilson, 59, of Indianapolis, was with her husband Kelvin. Both were taken to Eskenazi Hospital, which is where Kelvin was last reported to be in serious condition. Teresa was pronounced dead. Police say both were wearing helmets, and it was an accident.

FOX59 reached out to family members on Facebook. One of them said the couple are very giving, loving and caring.

"She was a saint," said one relative. He said every winter, Teresa would take clothes to the homeless. He also said the couple is very involved in the church.

Family members have gathered in Southwest Indiana as they try desperately to cope with the loss.

IMPD is using this tragedy as a reminder to you. If you're driving, you need to devote your full attention to the road, and protect yourself and everyone around you.

"You really need to drive. I mean, your vehicle is a one ton or more implement that can cause death," said Sgt. JoAnn Moore.

While Kelvin's injuries may heal, family says the two of them were soul mates and say he may never heal from that.
