AVON, Ind. (AP) — A dump truck driver has been taken into custody in connection with an 11-vehicle pileup outside Indianapolis that left two people dead and three injured.

Avon police say 62-year-old Danny Williams of Knightstown was arrested Tuesday on preliminary charges of reckless homicide. It was not disclosed what led to the charges.

Authorities say the crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of U.S. 36 and County Road 625 East.
