Fatal wreck closes I-69 in Fishers; interstate back open

FISHERS, Ind. - Police said all lanes of Interstate 69 were shut down due to a fatal crash early Sunday morning. As of 6 a.m., they were back open again.

Fishers police said just after 2 a.m. Sunday that northbound I-69 just south of exit 205 in Fishers was closed due to a crash. Then, at roughly 4:30 a.m., the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) tweeted that all lanes of I-69 in that area were going to be closed for roughly 3 hours. However by 6 a.m., INDOT told RTV6 all lanes were back open.

Crews were investigating and cleaning up a wreck that left at least one person dead.

Witnesses told Fishers police that a passenger car had been headed north on I-69 when the driver seemed to have lost control and the car left the roadway, flipping and hitting a tree on the east side of the interstate.

Investigators said the female driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene and the male passenger was taken to IU Methodist Hospital in critical condition.

Police have not yet named the victims of the crash.
