1 Dead, 1 Injured In I-69 Crash Friday Night In Grant County

One Indianapolis man was killed and another critically injured Friday evening when their pickup truck crashed along I-69 in Grant County, just south of the Marion exit.

State Police say a pickup driven by 59-year old Aaron Bates of Indianapolis drifted into the passing lane and then over-corrected, causing the truck to roll over and land in a ditch after hitting several trees.  Bates was ejected from the truck and was pronounced dead at the scene.  A passenger…35-year old Henry Tillberry…was also thrown from the truck.  He was flown to an Indianapolis hospital in critical condition.

State Police say neither man was wearing a seat belt.  Investigators are trying to figure out why the truck went out of control.
