INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man has died and another is injured after a single-vehicle crash on the northwest side of Indianapolis early Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to Kessler Boulevard at Roberta Drive, just north of Lafayette Road, shortly before 4 a.m.

Police said a car crashed into a tree, killing a male passenger. The driver, also a man, had minor injuries. The driver will have a blood draw to determine if drugs or alcohol were in his system.

It’s unclear if snow-coated roads played a role in the crash.

Additional information has not been released.
