One Dead In A Dump Truck Crash On City's South Side

Police say the driver of the dump truck tried to avoid a Pontiac and swerved onto the northbound East Street exit ramp.

INDIANAPOLIS -- One man died when a dump truck rolled over during a crash on the city’s south side, according to Indiana State Police.

The crash happened just before 8 a.m. on eastbound I-465 at mile marker 2.2 at the US 31 South ramp.

State police dispatchers confirmed one person died in the crash.

According to authorities, the driver of the dump truck, Ricky O'Neill, 65, was traveling eastbound on I-465 when Daniel Kahre's Pontiac changed lanes and hit the side of the dump truck.

Police say the dump truck ran off the road, broke through a guardrail, hit an embankment and overturned. 

O'Neill was trapped inside the truck, and police say he was unresponsive. When the Indianapolis Fire Department got O'Neill out he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kahre was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing, but police don't think alcohol played a factor in the crash.
