Police seek car, SUV that struck, killed pedestrian on east side

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police are seeking a blue car with front-end damage in their investigation of a Wednesday night hit-and-run that killed a 58-year-old woman.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday to a hit-and-run accident in the 4000 block of East 30th Street. That’s between Sherman Drive and Emerson Avenue on the city’s east side.

They found Linda Kimbrough had been hit by a blue 2000-2007 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable. While trying to get out of the road after the car hit her, Kimbrough was hit by a dark-colored 2008-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Both of the vehicles were westbound and left the scene.

The car left the scene going westbound. IMPD released a “stock photo” of what the blue car may look like.

Information on the Jeep was limited, and its color is unknown, police said.

An IMPD news release said, “The Taurus/Sable will have damage to the passenger side, including missing the passenger side mirror assembly. Damage to the Jeep may not be obvious, but the vehicle will have extensive damage to the inside of the front wheel-well on the driver’s side.”

Kimbrough was trying to walk across the street, police said. She died at the scene.
