Noblesville Police are investigating a crash that killed one Westfield man and left a Noblesville woman in serious condition after their 2002 Jeep Cherokee collided with a tree near Noblesville High School Freshman Campus.
Noblesville Police Dept. spokesman Lt. Bruce Barnes said the motor vehicle accident occurred at approximately 3:19 p.m. April 2 at 1625 Field Dr.
“Based on preliminary information, it appears that the Jeep Cherokee was traveling west bound on Field Drive when for some unknown reason the vehicle left the right side of the roadway and collided head on with a tree on the north side of the roadway,” he said.
There were two occupants inside the Jeep at the time and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
The driver, Gabrielle S. Commeville, 19, of Noblesville was transported by ambulance to I.U. Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis in serious condition. The passenger, Joseph J. Harris, 22, of Westfield was transported by ambulance to Riverview Health in Noblesville and later by air ambulance to I.U. Health Methodist Hospital where he died due to the injuries he sustained during the crash.
Barnes said identification of those injured will be released after family notifications have been confirmed.
Accident reconstructionists from the Noblesville Police Dept. and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the crash. Field Drive was temporary closed as investigators collected information and evidence regarding the crash. Barnes said the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
