State Trooper Pulls Two People From Fiery Crash

ISP says a Ford fusion ended up beneath a semi on I-465 near Harding Street around 3:30 a.m.

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indiana State Police trooper pulled two people from a fiery crash after a car ended up under a semi on I-465 south early Friday morning. 

The accident happened around 3:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-465 near the Harding Street exit.

Indiana State Police say a Ford Fusion was attempting to pass a semi on the shoulder when the driver overcorrected and bounced off the wall and into the semi. 

The car ended up underneath the semi and burst into flames. 

A responding state trooper was able to safely pull the two people from the fully engulfed car. No one was seriously injured. 

"When I pulled up the passengers were stuck inside the vehicle," said ISP Master Trooper Brian Snyder. "I had to pull the passenger through a window to get him out before the fire totally engulfed the vehicle."
