Fatal Accident in Indianapolis; Alcohol May Have Played a Role
Especially during the summer travel season, driving drunk and/or recklessly and not buckling up can sadly be a deadly combination. On Wednesday night, police say a motorist in a Ford Explorer ran a red light on the southside of Indianapolis and crashed into the front of a Chevy Tahoe. The motorist in the Ford was pronounced dead at the scene; the Tahoe occupants were uninjured. Police indicate that the deceased motorist, age 26, may have been drinking alcohol; he was also operating the vehicle with a suspended learner’s permit.
