INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – Indiana State Police say one person has died after a crash on I-70 at the North Split.

The single-vehicle crash happened just after 2:15 p.m. Sunday on I-70 going westbound.

State police tell Eyewitness News that the driver had to be cut out of the car before it caught fire.

Police say that driver may have been intoxicated and has since died as a result of their injuries.

Investigating officers believe the vehicle left the roadway, lost control, came back onto the roadway before running off the road again and colliding with a concrete wall.

There were no other vehicles involved and there were no other passengers inside the vehicle.

The westbound lanes of I-70 were affected for over two hours while the crash was investigated and the vehicle was removed.

State police are conducting an investigation.
