    Firefighters responded to the call and confirmed an unidentified man and woman were killed, according to WXIN-TV.

    It happened before 10 a.m. at the downtown Market Square Center Garage off East Market Street.
    It’s unclear how the vehicle fell from the garage and ended up in the alley below.

     

     

    Fire department spokeswoman Rita Reith called it “a very, very tragic” event and that there are “a lot more unknowns than unknowns,” according to The Indianapolis Star.

    “There was very little that the extrication teams could do,” Reith said.

    “It’s been turned over to the IMPD as a death investigation,” she said, according to the Star.
