INDIANAPOLIS — A crash on I-465 late Saturday morning left one person dead.

The Wayne Township Fire Department was called to the on-ramp of 465 from Rockville Road around 11:30 a.m.

The crash occurred due to someone driving the wrong way on the road.  Police had been chasing a suspect, who tried to get away by hopping onto the interstate in the wrong direction.  When they went to get off of the interstate, they hit another car head-on, killing the driver.

The suspect and the passengers of the other car were all taken to nearby hospitals.  Some of the passengers were children.

The fire department’s extrication teams were called in to help remove those who were trapped in their cars.  Ambulances, Indiana State Police officers, and IMPD officers also responded.

The ramp to I-465 south was closed while the crash was cleared and officers looked into the incident.

IMPD is currently investigating.
