According to Indiana State Police, 30-year-old Marc Cook of Martinsville stopped his repair van, with a yellow flashing light on top, behind a disabled pickup truck on the right shoulder of the eastbound lanes of I-70 around 1:15 p.m. near Rural Street and Keystone Avenue. A Ford Expedition struck Cook’s vehicle, pinning him between his van and the pickup truck Cook was assisting.

Cook was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other injuries reported.

ISP said the Expedition was driven by 30-year-old Dangelo Dixson of Indianapolis. Investigators believe Dixson was driving on a suspended license and that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Dixson was arrested and transported to the hospital for a blood draw to test for intoxication.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will make a final determination on any charges Dixson may face.
