INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police are looking for the driver that hit and killed a young woman on the near north side.

Emergency crews were called to the area of N. Meridian St. and 34th St. around 9:30 p.m. Police say an IndyGo bus had just dropped off passengers on Meridian, just north of 34th Street. One of the passengers was crossing the road when a red car traveling the opposite direction hit her and took off.

The hit was enough to throw her into a nearby construction area. She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Now police are actively searching for the driver that hit her. Witnesses say it was either a Charger or a Challenger, something with that body type. Also, it will have significant front end damage.

“They are looking at some of the cameras near the interstates to see if they get the vehicle getting on the interstate. I-65 is not too far from here,” IMPD Capt. Robert Troutt said.

This is the fourth pedestrian killed in two weeks. Police hope the driver will turn himself or herself into police. If you saw anything, please call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
