Taxi cap driver killed, in downtown Indianapolis crash; Police say alcohol contributed to fatal accident, woman jailed

Cab driver killed, young woman jailed in downtown crash; Police say alcohol contributed to fatal accident


By Jill Glavan


INDIANAPOLIS — Police say alcohol is likely to blame in a downtown Indianapolis crash that killed a taxi driver and put a 23-year-old woman behind bars.


The two-car accident happened just after 3:30 a.m. at the intersection of Delaware and Washington. An SUV, being driven by Whitney Gettys, 23, hit the driver side of a taxi cab. The cab was not carrying any passengers and the cab driver was pronounced dead at the scene.


Kevin Watkins Jr. was working at nearby Indy Bail Bonds. He had just stepped outside when the accident happened and rushed to try to help both drivers.
“Debris was flying everywhere,” Watkins Jr. said.


Watkins Jr. was able to get Gettys out of her car, saying she was disoriented but appeared alright. He described the damage to the taxi cab as devastating and called 911, unable to get to the driver inside.


“I’m mourning for his family,” Watkins Jr. said.


Gettys went into Indy Bail Bonds, where owner Kevin Watkins Sr. said she appeared very distraught and disoriented. In a report, police described the smell of alcohol on her breath and said Gettys had a hard time describing what happened.


Gettys was booked into the Marion Co. Jail after being evaluated at Wishard Hospital
