Fatal Semi-Truck Accident on I-465
Late on Saturday night, an Indianapolis woman was killed on southbound I-465 near the 12 mile marker when a semi-truck ran into her vehicle from behind. Around 11:30 p.m., a semi driven by Gurwinder Grewal, crashed into a 2013 Chrysler in the right lane. 28-year-old Chloe Knox was the only passenger and was unresponsive when state troopers arrived. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi-truck did not suffer physical injuries.
While investigating the accident, police discovered that Knox’s vehicle had been in park while still on the freeway. At this time, they do not know why she would have parked on the interstate, but the investigation is ongoing.
