January 28, 2013

Police say alcohol is likely to blame in a downtown Indianapolis crash that killed a taxi driver and put a 23-year-old woman behind bars. Whitney Gettys, 23, was arrested Sunday after she drove her sport-utility vehicle into the driver’s side of a cab at Delaware and Washington streets at about 3:15 a.m. The cab driver, who hasn’t been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. Gettys was booked into the Marion County Jail after being evaluated at Wishard Hospital.
