INDIANAPOLIS — A man died and two others were injured early Thursday after he tried to drive through two vehicles and struck them both, then hit a brick wall, police say.

The Marion County Coroner's Office on Tuesday identified the man as Darnell Cunningham, 65.

Officers were dispatched to the crash about 9 a.m. to the 3600 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, according to IMPD Lt. Shane Foley.

There, investigators discovered he was driving an Infiniti southbound and struck the other two vehicles, causing his vehicle to run off the road before crashing into the wall.

He was then transported to a local hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries. The other two drivers were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Foley said.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this story identified the driver who died in this incident as a woman. On Friday, Foley sent corrected information and said the driver who died was a man. The coroner's office hasn't released the man's name.
