Two killed, third injured in crash near Geist Reservoir

INDIANAPOLIS - Two people were killed and a third was taken to an Indianapolis hospital after a collision near Geist Reservoir Saturday night.

Around 11 p.m. Saturday, emergency crews were dispatched to a two-car collision near the intersection of Fall Creek Parkway and Sand Key Lane, just south of 96th Street.

IMPD spokesman Rafael Diaz said witnesses told police a Cadillac crossed the center line, striking a Ford Explorer with three people inside.

The driver and a passenger sitting in the rear of the Ford were declared dead at the scene, Diaz said. The third passenger was taken to an Indianapolis hospital.

The deceased driver and passenger were later identified as David Foster, 50, and Whitney Foster, 28, of Fortville, Indiana.

The driver of the Cadillac -- Paige Byers, 22, of Noblesville -- was removed from her vehicle by by-standers, and she was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, police said.

Byers was arrested Sunday on preliminary charges of two counts of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated causing Death and one count of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated causing Serious Bodily Injury.

The case will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office for a decision on whether or not formal charges will be filed.
