The Indianapolis Fire Department says a 44-year-old driver is in critical condition after a truck clipped a van on I-65 South at 38th Street and Industrial Boulevard, went airborne and hit a building Thursday morning.
Witnesses say the pickup truck came off the I-65 South ramp at a high rate of speed, clipped a white van sitting at the intersection, went airborne and slammed into a soon-to-open auto shop. The shop, Indy Customs, sells aftermarket truck and automobile accessories, and was scheduled to open on Saturday at 3760 Commercial Dr.
An 18-year-old driver and seven teenagers in the white van were unharmed after the crash. One person inside of the soon-to-open auto shop was also unharmed.
