INDIANAPOLIS - Police want to talk with the drivers of two vehicles following a fatal crash in Shelby County on Friday morning.
Shelby County sheriff's deputies were called to the crash on South State Road 9, south of CR 450 South, just before 8 a.m.
Police said a Chrysler passenger car was southbound on State Road 9 and had to veer to the right to avoid an oncoming vehicle. The Chrysler then overcorrected and crossed the center line, where it was hit by a Chrysler mini-van.
The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver of the van was taken to the hospital, police said. The drivers' identities have not yet been released.
Investigators are looking for information from the drivers of two other vehicles that were northbound on State Road 9 at the time of the crash: a dark-colored Chevrolet Trailblazer or similar, and a white Chevrolet Suburban or similar that left a driveway north of CR 500 South just before the crash.
If you have any information about this crash you are asked to contact Captain Roger Clark at 317-398-6661
