INDIANAPOLIS - A woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon on the city's near-west side, police said.
The crash was reported just before 1 p.m. at the intersection of West 17th Street and North Tibbs Avenue when police were dispatched for serious crash.
When Indianapolis Metro Police Department officers arrived at the scene, they found an unresponsive woman sitting in the driver's seat of a black Honda. The woman was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
Police said the driver of the other vehicle, a green Ford SUV, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Eskenazi Health Hospital in good condition.
Investigators said the crash happened when the Honda was trying to turn left from 17th Street onto North Tibbs Avenue. The Ford SUV was headed south on Tibbs Ave approaching 17th Street just before the collision.
Police don't think that speed or alcohol played a factor in the cause of the crash, but the driver of the SUV was given a standard blood draw because of the fatality.
The victim's name was not released pending notification of the family.
