INDIANAPOLIS – Seven people — two drivers and five children — were involved in a two vehicle car crash on Sunday in Decatur Township.

Around 4:45 p.m., IMPD and Decatur Township responded to a crash at 5602 Norcroft Drive.

The fire captain at the scene said the crash involved a SUV rolling on its side and a minivan that rolled on its roof.

Out of the total of 10 people involved in the crash, seven were transported to the hospital. One child is in critical condition.

IMPD said Monday the other four children ranged from 3-15-years-old.

Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.

Neighbors who witnessed the crash said that accidents frequently happen at this intersection. They have approached the city council multiple times about putting up a 4 way stop sign or a stop light at the intersection but feel like their suggestions have fallen on deaf ears.
