GAS CITY — A motorist died after crashing into a fire truck that was partially parked on a freeway median northeast of Indianapolis.
Charles Finney, 43, was driving north on Interstate 69 near Gas City about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday when he lost control of his SUV and slammed into the rear of the fire truck, according to the state police.
