Pilot Killed in Crash Along Rail Line in Indianapolis

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-90 that had taken off from Indianapolis Executive Airport.
