INDIANAPOLIS — A woman is dead following a single-car crash late Monday night on the city’s northwest side.

Indianapolis Metro police officers were dispatched around 10:30 p.m. to the 4400 block of Knollton Road, near the intersection of W. 44th Street, for a car crash.

Upon arrival, IMPD found a single vehicle that had crashed off of the roadway. The single occupant of the car, identified by police as an adult female, was ejected from the car during the crash and pronounced dead at the scene.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office identified the driver as 38-year-old Brittany Salonko.

A preliminary investigation into the fatal crash shows that the car was moving southbound on Knollton Road when it lost control and went off the roadway, causing it to flip over multiple times. IMPD believes excessive speed is the cause of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
