Crash kills 21-year-old woman

LATEST: The Hendricks County Coroner’s Office had not replied by Aug. 11, 2023, to a request for the identity of the driver and the cause of death.

DANVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A vehicle crash on Wednesday afternoon killed one and injured another, Danville Metropolitan Police Department says.

Police say a two-vehicle crash took place about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday off of East U.S. 36 and Park Ridge Drive in Danville, about half an hour west of Indianapolis.

Investigators say the crash killed a 21-year-old woman, and the other driver, a 52-year-old woman, was sent to an Indianapolis hospital to be treated for their injuries.

There were no others involved in the incident. Officers have not determined what caused the crash or released the names of those involved by Thursday.

On Thursday, Danville police posted on Facebook that they would be closing the intersection in the late morning and early afternoon to map the area with a drone camera. Rainy weather prevented the mapping on Wednesday.
