Girl Killed, Family Members Injured In 3-Vehicle Crash

INDIANAPOLIS — A 7-year-old girl was killed and her brother and father were injured in a crash Saturday morning that involved three vehicles on Indianapolis’ northeast side.

Indianapolis police were called to the intersection of Binford Boulevard and Delmar Road about 7:50 a.m.

 

When officers arrived, they found a heavily damaged Buick down an embankment, said Kendale Adams, Indianapolis police public information officer.

 

“Inside the vehicle, officers discovered an unresponsive 7-year-old female, her 4-year-old brother and their 35-year-old father,” Adams said. “Both the juveniles were transported to Riley Hospital for Children, where the 7-year-old was later pronounced deceased.”

 

Investigators identified the 7-year-old victim as Eries Avery, her brother Eric Avery,4, and their father Eric Avery, 35, RTV6’s Chance Walser reported.

 

The 4-year-old boy suffered a broken leg. The man was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for injuries not believed to be life threatening.

 

“Investigators believe that the silver Buick was eastbound on Delmar Road, attempting to cross Binford Boulevard, when it was struck on the passenger side by a silver Isuzu SUV traveling northbound on Binford Boulevard,” Adams said.

 

A Chevrolet pickup truck, also northbound on Binford, also hit the Buick, police said, sending it down the embankment. No one else was injured.

 

Police think the girl who died was in the front passenger seat and that her brother was in a back seat.

 

“It is not known … if either of them were secured by a restraint system or a seat belt,” Adams said. “This is a warning to parents that we have to take the time. We have to be diligent in ensuring that our kids are in those properly restrained mechanisms.”

 

Family members said Saturday was Eries Avery’s birthday.

 

The Fatal Accident Crash Team is investigating. Police don’t think alcohol was involved
