This past Wednesday night, two Indianapolis residents were hit by cars in separate pedestrian accidents. One lost their life at the scene and the other is in critical condition.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, a woman was struck and killed by a car near Madison Avenue and East County Line Road at the Marion/Johnson County line around 7 p.m. The woman suffered massive trauma and rescue crews were unable to save her. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver that hit the woman is cooperating with police investigators.
The second pedestrian accident occurred less than one hour after the fatal accident. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to reports of an accident at Lynhurst Drive and Seerley Creek Road, on the southwest side of the city.
Police said they found a semi-conscious teen with severe trauma and breathing trouble. The teen, 15-year-old Darius Queen, was riding his bicycle in the southbound lane of Lynhurst, in the Decatur Township, when he was struck by a southbound SUV. The impact threw Queen into the northbound lanes where a second vehicle struck him. The driver of the second vehicle fled the scene.
Queen was taken to the Wishard Memorial Hospital and is in critical condition.
Police are asking for anyone with information about the accident or the hit-and-run driver to come forward. They describe the second vehicle as a white Dodge Neon with a spoiler on the back and say it should show signs of damage to the front.
If you have any information about the pedestrian accident or Dodge Neon, please contact the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Hit-and-Run Office at 317-327-6549 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 (TIPPS).
