Man dies in crash on Indianapolis highway

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — A man died Friday night after crashing his car into another vehicle on the shoulder of an Indianapolis highway, Indiana State Police said.

In a statement released Saturday, the Indiana State Police said a pick-up truck pulling a camper broke down on the left shoulder of Interstate 465 on Friday evening. A wrecking service was hooking up to the disabled truck when a car left the road and hit the truck.

Authorities say the car then spun back into the road and struck two other vehicles.

Emergency crews arrived at 7:39 p.m. but the male driver of the car that struck the pick-up truck died at the scene. No information has been released about the man who died.

It took about three hours to clear and re-open the interstate's eastbound lanes on Friday.
