LATEST: As of June 22, 2023, IMPD nor the Marion County Coroner’s Office had publicly identified the pedestrian who died.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person died Monday morning after being hit by a vehicle on the south side of Indianapolis.

Just before 6 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to a report of a pedestrian hit at South Meridian and East Yoke Streets. That’s at the southwest corner of Concordia Cemetery, just north of Troy Avenue and about a half-mile south of Pleasant Run.

Officers arrived and learned that a pedestrian had been hit while trying to cross the street. The person was pronounced dead at the scene, IMPD Public Information Officer Samone Burris said in a release.

The driver of the vehicle involved in the crash stayed at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, Burris says, and no one else was hurt.

Police were still investigating and did not say what led to the crash. No arrests have been made.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office will share the name of the victim once family members have been notified.

The intersection of Meridian and Yoke Streets was closed for several hours for investigation and cleanup.
