INDIANAPOLIS - A motorcycle passenger was killed and the driver was critically injured in a crash on Interstate 70 Saturday afternoon.
The crash happened about 7:25 p.m. on the eastbound I-70 ramp to northbound Interstate 465.
Indiana State Police said the passenger, Ashley Drake, 22, of Six Lakes, Michigan, "appeared to adjust her seating, which caused the driver to lose control of the motorcycle."
The driver was identified as Kyle Lovell, 22, of Tustin, Michigan.
"The motorcycle struck a guardrail, and Drake was thrown from the bike," ISP Sgt. Rich Myers said in a news release.
Drake was pronounced dead at the scene, and Lovell was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.
ISP said both riders were wearing helmets.
