An Indianapolis man was killed shortly before midnight Sunday when his motorcycle was struck by an alleged drunk driver.
Indiana State Police received a report of a serious crash at about 11:20 p.m. on I-465 westbound at the 27.9 mile marker. Officers arrived to find the crash involved a Honda passenger car and a Victory motorcycle.
Preliminary investigation revealed the car, driven by Kevin Scott Davis, 24, of Indianapolis, was traveling at a high rate of speed in the center lane of I-465 when it ran up on and struck the motorcycle, which appeared to be traveling at or slightly above the posted speed.
The motorcycle ended up about 200 yards west from the point of impact, off the right side of the road and over an embankment. The car came to rest against the barrier wall to the left after striking the wall at least twice.
The motorcyclist, Todd Klebes, 41, of Indianapolis, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Davis was not injured and was arrested for operating while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury or death, a class B felony.
Westbound traffic was diverted off of I-465 onto U.S. 31 until 3:10 a.m. that morning while officers investigated the scene.
