INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Fire officials and police say one person has been killed and several others injured after a crash involving a church van and a car that fled the scene.
The accident happened shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday. The van was carrying 18 people, and fire officials say 17 were taken to hospitals including one who was critically injured.
Fire Lt. Bonnie Hensley tells The Associated Press the van was filled with a mix of children and adults.
Police Lt. Christopher Bailey tells The Indianapolis Star that he does not know whether the person who was killed was driving the church van or was a passenger. He says the driver of the car that was in the accident fled the scene but was caught a short time later.
Police continue to investigate.
