The driver of the car was Kevin Field, 51, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe Kevin Field stabbed his wife to death, possibly in front of their three children, according to IMPD spokesman Kendale Adams. Police said Kevin Field apparently stabbed his wife in an argument, leaving her to die. He then got into a 1992 Lincoln and drove away. At the intersection of Carson Avenue and Lindbergh Drive, police found the Lincoln had smashed into a tree, apparently at high speed, on roads that were slippery from the morning’s snow.
