Small Plane Crash Along Indianapolis Rail Line
Author: pt199

 
Jan 25-The pilot of a small plane was killed on Tuesday afternoon when the craft crashed along a railroad line on the south side of Indianapolis.
The crash occurred about 3:45 p.m. near Weaver Avenue close to the University of Indianapolis campus.
Rail traffic was halted while investigators processed the scene. A Louisville & Indiana train was stopped near the Weaver Avenue crossing.
The rail line was once a Pennsylvania Railroad route between Indianapolis and Louisville, Kentucky.
Most of the route is now operated by L&I, but CSX has retained ownership of the track in Indianapolis.
The plane was reported to be a Cirrus SR that had taken off from Indianapolis Executive Airport. From the akronrrblog
