INDIANAPOLIS — One person died and two others were hospitalized after a multi-vehicle crash on I-465 Thursday evening.

First responders were dispatched to a serious crash in the northbound lanes of I-465 near 86th Street at mile marker 23.

Four vehicles were involved in the crash, and three adults were transported to a local hospital by IEMS.

An adult female was pronounced dead at the hospital. Another adult female suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized. An adult male suffered minor injuries.

A preliminary investigation by ISP says traffic in the area was backed up for unknown reasons when the driver of an SUV failed to stop and struck the back of a passenger car.

The deceased woman and two injured people were inside the passenger car. The impact caused a chain reaction, collecting three additional vehicles. Four vehicles suffered significant damage and required tow trucks.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected to be a factor in the crash. State police are still investigating.

The crash closed all northbound lanes of I-465 at 86th Street for more than four hours.
