INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department announced Tuesday they have made an arrest in a hit-and-run that left a bicyclist dead on the city’s southeast side.
Officers arrested Michael Anderson, 35, after receiving an anonymous call indicating a green truck with front-end damage was parked in the 6200 block of Sandyside Drive. Detectives at the scene confirmed it was the vehicle that fatally struck Earmon “Bud” Hubbard III last Saturday in the 2600 block of Emerson Avenue.
Monday, police released an updated description of the suspect’s vehicle, describing it as a 1997 to 2001 dark hunter green Mercury Mountaineer with a tan trim.
Anderson was preliminarily charged with failure to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in death, a Class C felony. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office is reviewing the case and will make the final charging decision.
