Alcohol is being blamed in an accident that killed one person on the west side of Indianapolis early Sunday. William Jackson was charged with causing death while intoxicated and driving on a suspended license. Detectives say the 26-year-old was driving a Cadillac that struck a Tahoe head-on in the 800 block of North Lynhurst Drive, killing a 25-year-old passenger in the Tahoe. Four other passengers were injured but are expected to survive. Both Jackson and the driver of the Tahoe fled the scene. Police suspect both drivers were intoxicated.
