INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Indianapolis police are searching for a driver who fled the scene after a hit and run crash on the city’s east side Tuesday afternoon.
Police say 59-year-old Michael Robertson was critically injured, after he was hit while walking along the side of the road.
A witness told investigators she and another woman, named ‘Nikia’ in the report, had a dispute during work. She said that woman drove around on the side of her car, trying to hit her car with a baseball bat.
Instead, she said the woman’s car hit Robertson, and fled the scene.
Witnesses told investigators the vehicle involved was a 1998 green, four-door Chevrolet Malibu with the license plate OFP531, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials said. The vehicle is registered to Felicia Moss, though police didn't say whether she was driving the Malibu.
Robertson was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital in what police described as "extremely critical" condition.
The hit-and-run happened around 1 p.m. in the 1700 block of Sheldon Street, near 16th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, just north of Interstate 70.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS or the IMPD crash unit at 317-327-6197.
The federal government says nearly 3,500 Indiana residents chose a health insurance plan through the federally run online exchange during its first two months of operation.
A cooling system at a women's shelter near Community Hospital was stripped of copper early Tuesday morning.
Walking into Ed Krzemienski's westside, ranch-style home, the sight of the toys, the electric train set and the foosball table leads you to two conclusions: Like a lot of guys, he has young kids, plus a well-honed sense of competition.
