INDIANAPOLIS — One person died and two others were sent to the hospital after a crash on Interstate 465 on Indianapolis' northwest side, police say.

The crash involved two vehicles and left three left lanes blocked between Lafayette Road and West 71st Street, according to Indiana State Police and the Indiana Department of Transportation.

When first responders arrived they found the driver entrapped in the wreckage who was unresponsive. Despite life-saving efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other people were transported by ambulance from the scene with non-life-threatening injuries.

A preliminary investigation determined a vehicle was entering I-465 northbound from I-65 northbound driven by the deceased man. The man lost control and spun sideways into the path of oncoming traffic. The vehicle was then struck in the driver's side door by a vehicle that was northbound on I-465.

A passenger in the vehicle being driven by the deceased man and the driver of the second vehicle were both injured. All occupants were wearing seatbelts.

Several lanes of I-465 were closed for nearly three hours while the crash was investigated and the wrecked vehicles were removed.

The name of the deceased person hasn't been released.
