A Bloomington man has been killed in a single-car accident in Hendricks County.
Police say 22-year-old Devontia Harper-Owings was westbound Sunday night on U.S. 40 near County Road 550 West when the car went off the road.
Authorities believe Harper-Owings overcorrected the car causing it to cross the median and roll over. The car then hit a utility pole on the south side of U.S. 40.
Harper-Owings was ejected through the window and was pronounced at the scene. Police say he was not wearing a seatbelt.
