An Indianapolis man died in a single-vehicle crash on I-70 near downtown Friday night.

Witnesses told police 70-year-old Jessie Stewart was driving west on the interstate just east of downtown when his vehicle made an abrupt left turn and crashed head-on into the concrete dividing wall.

Stewart was transported to Wishard Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A state trooper on the scene said there were open alcoholic beverage containers in the vehicle and believes alcohol may have played a factor in the crash.
