Coroner IDs victims after SUV falls from downtown parking garage

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified two victims after a SUV fell from a downtown parking garage on Wednesday.

The victims have been identified as 73-year-old Charles Hunt and 70-year-old Iristeen Hunt. They are from University Park, Illinois.

Just before 10 a.m. Wednesday, emergency crews were called to the 200 block of East Market Street. First responders arrived to find an inverted SUV that plunged from the third floor of a parking garage.

The victims were found dead inside of the vehicle.

The coroner’s office has ruled the cause of their deaths as accidental via multiple blunt force injuries.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is in charge of the investigation into how this happened.

IMPD says there isn’t any sort of criminal investigation at this time.

According to IMPD Captain Christopher Bailey, the SUV was traveling southbound in the parking garage on the third floor and for an unknown reason it struck an unoccupied vehicle before hitting the wall of the parking garage and falling to the ground.

An additional person inside of City Market was checked for injuries but it was deemed not serious, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department.

No surveillance video of what happened has been made public.
