INDIANAPOLIS — A man and his dog have died following a fatal crash on the southwest side of Indianapolis.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officers responded to Sam Jones Expressway near Interstate 465 shortly after 7 p.m. on reports of a crash involving a sedan and a van.
IMPD says the adult male driver of the sedan was transported to a local hospital where he later died. A dog that was in his vehicle also died at the scene.
