BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WISH) - Police are searching for the driver of a station wagon that hit and killed a man late Sunday.
According to the Beech Grove Police Department, a man in his 30s was in the road outside of a pick-up truck on Emerson Avenue near Churchman Avenue around 11:10 p.m.
Witnesses told police they saw a dark colored station wagon strike the man and leave the scene. Police are looking for a late 90s model Mercury Sable or Ford Taurus.
The man was taken to a local hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead Monday morning.
"The rear passenger side window was broken out and covered with plastic, so that’s the most distinctive feature we have at this point,” Cpt. Kellen Malloy said.
Officers were working to determine why the man was in traffic when he was hit.
“It sounds like he got out of a vehicle… We don’t know what the circumstances were; if he fell out of a truck or if he jumped out,” Malloy said. “He did leave a truck and was apparently struck moments after that.”
The victim’s fiancé was with him at the time of the accident. She did not talk to police immediately after the crash as she traveled to the hospital with the victim.
Anyone who spots the vehicle described or has information about what happened is asked to call the Beech Grove Police Dept. at (317) 782-4949.
