Entry Description

Indianapolis, IN- A Martinsville man was transported to St. Francis Hospital this morning after being involved in a personal injury crash on I-465.

Wednesday morning, August 21st, at 8:42 a.m., Indiana State Police responded to a two vehicle crash on
I-465 EB at the 1.9 mm.

Preliminary investigation and witness statements revealed that Donald Lee Jr., 45, of Martinsville IN was stationary on the inside emergency shoulder of I-465 in a 1998 Buick. Witnesses stated the car abruptly crossed I-465 and struck the outside guard rail then crossed I-465 again and struck the inside guard rail. The vehicle again crossed I-465, struck the guard rail, and was struck by 2000 Freightliner semi-tractor trailer, driven by Alphonse Turner Jr., 57, of Indianapolis, as it crossed I-465 for the fourth time. The vehicle came to rest against the inside concrete barrier of I-465.

Lee Jr. was found to be unresponsive and was transported to St. Francis Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Turner Jr. was not injured.

Investigators believe that Lee Jr. may have suffered a medical condition prior to the collision.
