PLAINFIELD, Ind. -- Four people were injured in a two vehicle crash on I-70 in Hendricks County Friday afternoon.

Two people in the Honda were taken to the hospital, including one who was airlifted.

A passenger from the Saturn, along with the person who was outside the Kia Soul, were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
