INDIANAPOLIS — A man died and two others were seriously injured in a crash early Thursday on an entrance ramp to Interstate 465 on the city's southwest side, officials say.
Indiana State Police say the crash occurred around 5:15 a.m. on the ramp from southbound I-465 to Washington Street.
The driver didn't navigate the curve in the ramp and ended up going through a ditch before hitting an embankment and becoming airborne, according to ISP.
"The vehicle then landed on the other side of the onramp, overturned and came to rest upside down," ISP said in a news release.
