Indianapolis (Dec. 18, 1999) -- Grant King King died Friday from severe injuries he suffered in a crash at a rural Hendricks County intersection.

Indiana State Police accident investigators blamed the 9:15 a.m., two-vehicle collision at Cartersburg Road and County Road 200 South on driver error.

However, the intersection, located southwest of Danville, has been called treacherous by some.

Apparently King ran through a stop sign and pulled into the path of a 1994 Ford pickup.

He was a former Indianapolis 500 car owner and builder. Through the early 1980s, he owned or served as a chief mechanic or car builder on dozens of Indy 500 cars.

King also built sprint cars, and his drivers won several United States Auto Club sprint car championships during the 1970s.
