No vehicle located after report of manhole cover striking car
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — After a manhole cover is reported to have popped up and struck a car, IMPD now says they can’t find evidence of the incident happening.
Just before 9:30 p.m. Friday, a manhole cover was reported to have flown off and struck a vehicle at the intersection of Michigan Street and Sherman Avenue.
IMPD investigated but could not locate the vehicle.
An IMPD officer on the scene believes a car may have knocked the cover off while driving.
In the meantime, cones have been placed around the hole to warn drivers.
Brandi Davis-Handy with IPL says that the company does not have any underground facilities in that area and no reports of an incident in their system.
