INDIANAPOLIS -- An Avon woman died after being involved in a crash Wednesday night.

Police responded to the scene of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Ronald Reagan Parkway and County Road 100 South around 8:25 p.m.

The driver of one of the vehicles, 26-year-old Lisa Strueh, died at Methodist Hospital.

The other driver, 19-year-old Iqpal Kandhola of Indianapolis, and a passenger were treated for minor injuries and released.

The accident is still under investigation.

Police say Kandhola is cooperating and a number of witnesses have come forward to assist in the investigation.

This was the second deadly crash in Avon Wednesday night.
