INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two Indiana Department of Transportation workers were struck by a vehicle on eastbound I-70 Thursday afternoon, according to state police.
Indiana State Police say the workers were struck just before 2 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-70 near Rural and Keystone on Thursday. The workers were patching holes when they were struck, police say.
One of the workers was treated and released at the scene. The other worker was taken to Eskenazi Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say Licole Culp, 23, of Indianapolis, was merging onto I-70 eastbound from Keystone Avenue when she was sideswiped by a van, swerved back into closed lanes, lost control and struck the workers and a piece of construction equipment.
Culp was taken to Eskenazi Hospital to be checked out and have her blood drawn, which police say is a standard practice for serious crashes. A passenger in Culp’s car was also treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
No criminal charges have been filed at this time. An investigation is ongoing.
