INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - One man was killed and a second man was injured following a crash late Monday on the city's west side.
The crash happened just after 11 p.m. at the intersection of West 38th Street and Moller Road.
Officers at the scene say a Buick Century crashed into the back of a tanker truck carrying thousands of gallons of gasoline.
Investigators say the tanker was stopped at a traffic light when the crash occurred.
The car's driver was dead at the scene. Medics took a passenger to the hospital with minor injuries.
According to a police report, the passenger claimed he did not know the driver of the vehicle and didn't know he was in Indianapolis.
Police say they believe the driver and the passenger had recently shot up with heroin prior to the crash.
Police did not immediately know the identity of the man that was killed in the crash.
The tanker driver told police he did not feel the impact of the crash and only became aware of the accident when someone pulled alongside his window to let him know what happened.
The mother of two young girls saved by 16-year-old Aubrey Peters more than three years ago, says Peters is truly a hero.
The Indianapolis City-County Council decided a couple of prominent proposals still need some work during a meeting on Monday.
New details have been released about a robbery and murder that claimed the life of an Indiana National Guardsman.
