(HINDUSTAN) - An Indianapolis man was killed Saturday night in an accident near Crossover Road on State Road 37 north of Bloomington.

According to an Indiana State Police report, for reasons still unknown, a northbound 1965 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by 33-year-old Joseph T. Birtchman of Indianapolis crossed the median and continued into the southbound lanes, striking an oncoming mini van.
