INDIANAPOLIS — One person was killed Friday morning in a crash on the city’s southeast side. 

The accident happened just before 5 a.m. at Emerson Avenue and I-465, near Beech Grove.

The driver of the red pickup truck died at the scene. His name will be made available once his family has been notified.

The man driving the Nissan was taken to Eskenazi Hospital with several injuries. Police believe he was driving drunk.
