INDIANAPOLIS -- One person is dead after a violent crash on Indianapolis' south side Saturday evening.
Officers were called to the intersection of East Stop Road 11 and Madison Avenue around 11 p.m. after a vehicle reportedly took out part of a railroad crossing arm and slammed into a pole.
Indianapolis police say the vehicle was covered in power lines which prevented emergency crews from getting to the victim right away.
The person inside the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. Their name has not been released.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
