Woman dead after single-vehicle crash on I-70 on Indy’s near northeast side

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A woman is dead following a car accident on Indianapolis’ near northeast side.

Indiana State Police say the single-vehicle crash occurred shortly before 5 a.m. on Interstate 70 early Sunday morning at the 85.6 mile marker.

According to police, first responders arrived to find 28-year-old Kaitlin McWilliams lying in the left lane of the eastbound side of the interstate. Despite life saving efforts, McWilliams was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe McWilliams’ 2012 Chevrolet drove off the left side of the roadway and struck the concrete median wall. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police say, and was ejected through from the vehicle.

Troopers believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident.

Police temporarily shut down the two left lanes on I-70 for two hours while the crash was investigated and the wreckage removed. All lanes have been reopened since.
