2 dead following drunk driving accident in Indiana

Hendricks County was the site of tragedy the night of May 15 when two men tragically lost their lives near County Road 350. Indiana police responded to what is believed to have been a drunk driving accident that killed two men and seriously injured another woman. So far, no charges have been filed by authorities, but their investigation is still underway as of this report.

According to the accident report, two vehicles were involved in the accident, which occurred around 10:00 p.m. Police arriving on the scene found both cars with serious damage. They believe an SUV headed southeast may have run a stop sign, causing it to collide with a northbound pickup truck in the intersection.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 35-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 35-year-old passenger in the SUV was also pronounced dead. The woman who was driving the SUV was injured and was rushed to a local hospital with injuries deemed serious but not life-threatening. Police believe she may have been under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the crash. A routine toxicology scan was likely administered at the hospital, though the results of such tests can take up to several weeks to be processed.

If it turns out the woman was intoxicated, she may be held responsible for what will officially be filed as a drunk driving accident by Indiana police. Criminal charges will likely follow. In addition, the families of the deceased men will also be entitled to file wrongful death lawsuits against her in a civil court setting using any relevant evidence gathered in the police investigation.
