IMPD investigating serious crash on northwest side – Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather | Indiana Traffic

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police are investigating a serious crash on Indy’s northwest side that sent at least four people to the hospital.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1800 block of North Harding Street, a residential area about three-tenths of a mile east of Riverside Park.

Police arrived at the intersection of 18th and Harding streets to find a crash involving two cars and an IndyGo bus. The IndyGo bus’ windshield was blown off in the crash and was found intact several feet away.

IMPD says four people in a car were taken to the hospital with injuries.

“Upon further investigation, it was learned that the victim also sustained injuries consistent with a gunshot wound,” IMPD Public Information Officer Tommy Thompson said in a statement.

An IMPD accident investigator told News 8 that the IndyGo bus’s only passenger left the scene before emergency services arrived. The bus driver was not injured.

The people in the other vehicle fled, but it’s unclear why, the crash investigator told News 8’s Hernan Gutierrez.

Harding Street is closed in both directions between 16th/16th Tech and 19th Street for investigation and cleanup.
