A 63-year-old woman was killed on the south side Monday morning following a hit-and-run crash.
The woman’s body was found near the intersection of Troy and Meridian at 10:30 a.m. The coroner identified the victim as Kathleen J. Clark of Indianapolis.
Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were looking through eight hours of security video footage from a bar across the street in order to get more information about the suspect and suspect’s vehicle.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Clark was walking southbound along Meridian Street, when a car traveling southbound hit her. There are no sidewalks in the area.
“The only thing in this case we could have encouraged is maybe some reflective clothing, something that makes you very visible to passing cars,” said Kendale Adams of IMPD. “And we always encourage our drivers to make sure they’re aware of what’s in front of them, not drive distracted or anything like that.”
IMPD said they recovered several pieces from the vehicle. They believe they’re looking for a 1997 – 2004 gold or tan Ford F150 pickup truck or Expedition with right passenger side damage. Police said the vehicle should be missing a right side front headlamp.
