Police are investigating after a man was found dead in his car in a retention pond on the northeast side of Indianapolis Wednesday, Indiana State Police said.
Divers from the Indianapolis Fire Department found Ronald Wade, 44, of Indianapolis, submerged in a blue Dodge Charger in a pond near 3960 Pendleton Way just before noon Wednesday.
State police detectives say the vehicle was southbound on I-465 just south of Pendleton Pike when it left the roadway “for unknown reasons.”
“The vehicle went through a ditch, through a chain link fence before crossing Pendleton Way and into a retention pond,” police said in a news release.
Wade had been reported as a missing person to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sept. 28.
The incident comes just days after a man died trying to pull his car from a retention pond in the same area over the weekend.
