Central Indiana officer arrested after fatal crash

Lapel — Authorities say a central Indiana police officer has been arrested after a crash that killed a man and badly hurt his pregnant wife.

The Madison County Sheriff's Department says Edgewood police Officer James Foutch was off duty when his SUV ran into the back of a car driven by 22-year-old Rebecca Marie Sperry of Pendleton on Sunday.

The Herald Bulletin reports the car went off Ind. 32 near the town of Lapel and into a utility pole, crushing the car's passenger side. The county coroner says Jesse Sperry died. His wife was taken to an Indianapolis hospital.

Police say Foutch was possibly under the influence of prescription medication and was jailed on a preliminary charge of driving while intoxicated causing death. It wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.
