1 killed, several injured in Ind. church van crash
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Police and fire officials in Indianapolis say one person has been killed and several others injured after a crash involving a church van filled with passengers.
Police Lt. Christopher Bailey says the driver of the van was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday night.
Bailey says 11 passengers sustained minor injuries requiring hospital treatment. He says a 7-year-old girl was transported in serious condition, but her injuries do not appear life-threatening.
He says the van carrying 18 people was heading back to the Jesus House of Prayer Temple shortly before 8 p.m. when it traveled westbound through a green light at an intersection. He says a northbound car did not stop and hit the van.
Bailey says the car driver fled on foot, but was caught a few blocks away.
