Fishers, (Indiana) – Fishers police are investigating after a Sunday evening crash, on Interstate 69, sends three people to the hospital.
At approximately 8:30 last night the Hamilton County Dispatch Center received several 911 calls regarding a serious crash near the northbound exit ramp for 116th Street. Fishers police and fire responded to the scene.
According to evidence at the scene and witness statements, a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling northbound on I69 and struck the safety brace attached to the concrete barrier wall that separates the interstate from the exit ramps to northbound State Road 37 and 116th Street. The force of the impact sent the van and its engine block airborne. Before coming to rest, the van struck a northbound 2011 Chevy Malibu and the engine block was struck by a northbound 2007 Ford F250 Truck. The driver of the van and both occupants in the passenger car were treated at the scene and then transported, by ground ambulance, to area hospitals in Indianapolis. This case remains under investigation.
