Pedestrian killed in Fountain Square

A man rushing to the airport in his van Tuesday night missed his turn and hit two pedestrians on the sidewalk, killing one. Joseph Anthony Scott Crandall, 20, was driving south on Shelby Street in Fountain Square about 8:30 p.m. when he tried to turn onto Prospect Street and jumped a curb. One pedestrian died on the scene. The other, Aaron Schaler, 35, was taken to Wishard Hospital in stable condition. Investigators don’t believe drugs or alcohol played a factor, but said Crandall told them he was in a hurry because he had eight minutes to get to the airport.
