Accident with disabled car kills Indy man on I-865

February 10, 2012

A 73-year-old Indianapolis man killed this morning in a series of crashes on I-65 and an I-865 ramp in Boone County has been identified by authorities as Sterling Russell, Indianapolis.


Boone County sheriff’s Deputy Craig Fouts said in a news release that Russell was a passenger in a 1999 white Grand Prix, when his daughter, Elizabeth Russell, 39, was driving north on I-65 about 6 a.m. The vehicle had a flat tire and was going slow in the far right lane, the release said.


A 2006 Ford F-250 driven by, Carl Jones, 54, Martinsville, was northbound at interstate speed and struck the Grand Prix, pushing it across a grassy area and into merging northbound traffic from I-865, the release said. A 2006 Ford Volvo then struck the Grand Prix in the roadway on the ramp.


Sterling Russell died at the scene, Fouts said. His daughter and Jones were taken to area hospitals for treatment.


The Boone County Serious Accident Crash Team was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.


“If you are having trouble with your vehicle, get off the traveled portion of the roadway onto the shoulder,” said Sheriff Ken Campbell as advice to motorists in the wake of the highway death. “Driving very slowly, even with the emergency flashers on, on the roadway, is dangerous. You can always call 911 if you are stranded on the highway and law enforcement will come and assist in some manner.”


The accident shut down I-865, which links I-65 and I-465 on the Northwestide, for about four hours.
