Fishers man killed in single-car crash


An adult male was killed in an April 28 car crash in Fishers.

Emergency responders were called to the accident at the northbound lanes of I-69 at the 207.5-mile marker, 2 miles north of the 116th Street Exit at approximately 2:30 p.m. Indiana State Police have not released the driver’s name.

According to a press release from the Indiana State Police, first responders found a heavily damaged passenger vehicle in a ditch along the right side of the highway. The driver had been ejected and was entrapped underneath the wreckage.

Despite lifesaving efforts by first responders, the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. There were no other occupants in the vehicle and no other vehicles were involved.

A preliminary investigation determined the driver drove off the roadway to the right for unknown reasons. The vehicle struck the end of a guardrail and overturned. It does not appear the driver was wearing a seatbelt.

Indiana State Police was assisted by the Fishers Police Dept., the Fishers Fire Dept., Indiana Dept. of Transportation, the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office and Paddack’s Wrecker Service. The investigation into the circumstances of the crash is ongoing.
