Two people have died and three others were seriously injured in a crash on Interstate 70 near downtown Indianapolis.
State police say five people were ejected from a silver van on I-70 eastbound near Harding Street shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday. The van rolled at least four times, off the road and into a grassy area along the off-ramp to Harding Street.
State Police say that 17-year-old Taylor Parsons and 18-year-old Brandon Gross, both of Indianapolis, died in the crash. The names of the three people injured have not been released.
Both arere believed to be students at Ben Davis High School.
Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine said it’s too early to tell if the crash was the result of road rage, though the grandfather of one of the victims said she was able to make a call after the crash and said another vehicle had been following them at a high rate of speed.
“We are receiving some of those reports this could be a road rage incident, but it’s too early in this investigation to determine that and to make that statement, but that’s definitely something we are looking into,” Perrine said.
Perrine added that they are investigating the possibility that the Pathfinder was being chased at the time of the crash after an incident at an Indianapolis-area park.
