(Joe Felton WISH-TV News)

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police arrived at the scene of a double-fatality car accident on Saturday morning.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified Lorenda Sue Wampler, 49, and Jonie Faye Johnson-Milan, 46, both of Indianapolis, as the two female occupants of the car.

After a preliminary investigation, Indiana State Police stated the female driver and female passenger were driving a 1998 Oldsmobile that ended up northbound on I-465 at 11.6-mile marker.

Police believe that the car went off the shoulder of the road, hit a guard rail end cap on the driver’s side, spun around and struck a second guard rail end cap, ejecting both occupants. The vehicle continued to slide along the guardrail and came to a stop on the concrete bridge over Washington Street.

Wampler and Johnson-Milan were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are still investigating which woman was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
