A 14-year-old boy driving a stolen SUV crashed into a pickup truck on the evening of June 19, 2015, critically injuring the pickup driver. According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police, the boy was driving at a high rate of speed, blew past a stop sign, and collided with the truck near Post and I-70.
Emergency medical services (EMS) technicians had to rescue the 53-year-old man from the wrecked pickup truck. An ambulance took him to Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in “extreme critical condition,” according to police on the scene. The man later died of his injuries.
The teen suffered only minor injuries. EMS responders took him to Eskenazi Hospital for evaluation. The boy’s grandmother had reported the SUV stolen before the crash occurred.
Police believe speed contributed to the seriousness of the crash.
