Fishers, (Indiana) – Fishers police continue to investigate following a serious motor vehicle crash that occurred on Monday evening in the 12100 block of Olio Road.

Shortly after 7pm, this past Monday, officers responded to a motor vehicle crash involving three vehicles. As officers arrived, they discovered one of the vehicles, a 2008 blue Saturn Vue, was on fire and three Good Samaritans had rescued the semi-unconscious driver prior to the Saturn becoming engulfed in flames.

According to witness information and evidence at the scene it appears the 2008 Saturn was traveling southbound, on Olio Road, and struck the Pedestrian Crosswalk Traffic Signal dividing the southbound and northbound traffic lanes. After striking the traffic signal, the Saturn traveled into the northbound lanes and struck a 2014 black, Toyota Rav4 and a 2004 silver Jeep Liberty. The driver of the Saturn and the driver of the Toyota were transported to area hospitals by Fishers Department of Fire and Emergency Services for non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Jeep received medical treatment at the scene and was released.

During the investigation, officers developed information leading them to believe the driver of the Saturn, later identified as Clairin Filippelli, was possibly intoxicated. Ms. Filippelli submitted to a toxicology test. The results of that test are pending. Upon the conclusion of the investigation this case may be presented to the Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for review.

This crash continues to be an active investigation. Additional information may be provided as it becomes available.
