A 38-year-old Indianapolis woman was critically injured when she was struck by a car southwest of Downtown early Sunday.
Florence Grier was walking with another female at Harding and Ray streets about 1 a.m. near the I-70 interchange when a vehicle hit her, Anthony Schneider of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
Grier, who was in “very critical condition” at the time, was transported to Wishard Memorial Hospital, Schneider said.
Scott Ficklin, 40, Indianapolis, told police he was driving a white 1999 Cadillac south on Harding when he saw two people crossing the street. Ficklin said he veered to the left, but the car hit Grier.
Because of the seriousness of the accident, Fatal Alcohol Crash Team No. 6 was called to the scene. Ficklin was transported for a blood draw, but Schneider said alcohol is not thought to have been involved.
