IMPD: At least 2 hurt in crash at East St. and Southport Rd.

SOUTHPORT, Ind. (WISH) — At least two people were injured, one critically, in a Monday morning crash at a busy Southport intersection.

Just before 6 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a two-vehicle crash at South East Street and Southport Road, roughly 1.5 miles east of U.S. 31.

Based on evidence at the scene, investigators believe a southbound vehicle went left of center and hit a vehicle in the northbound lanes, IMPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Genae Cook said in a release.

The intersection is expected to be closed for some time.

Anyone traveling through the area should seek an alternate route to avoid delays.
