INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash on I-465 just north of I-65, according to Indiana State Police.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office by April 17, 2023, had not responded to an email request for the identification of the man who died.

At 11:12 a.m., state police began receiving calls about a serious crash northbound on I-465 near the 120.1-mile marker just north of the I-65 interchange.

Preliminary investigation determined a vehicle was entering I-465 northbound from I-65 northbound driven by a man and person in the passenger’s side of the vehicle, police said.

The man lost control of the vehicle and spun sideways into the path of oncoming traffic causing the vehicle to be hit on the driver’s side door by a vehicle that was northbound on I-465.

The passenger in the vehicle of the man who died was injured.

The driver of the vehicle that was driving in the path of oncoming traffic was also injured.

Everyone was wearing seatbelts, police said.

First responders arrived to find the driver who lost control of his vehicle unresponsive and entrapped in the vehicle. He died at the scene. The two other people were taken by ambulance from the scene with non-life-threatening injuries.

Several lanes of I-465 were closed for nearly three hours while the crash was investigated and the wrecked vehicles were removed.

The name of the man who died was being withheld to secure a positive identification and to notify his family members.
