INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A 91-year-old man whose car stalled on E. Washington just east of Mitthoeffer Road has died after being struck by another car on Saturday.
The man was driving westbound on E. Washington when his car stalled. He got out of the car to check his engine when another westbound car hit him. Police responded to the call at 6:24 p.m. The man was transported to Methodist Hospital, but passed away from his injuries.
The driver who struck the man didn’t stop at first, but did return to the scene and confess. Police say the driver claims she didn’t know she hit anyone at first. She says she only realized when she drove back past the scene.
Detectives determined it was not a criminal hit and run and the case was investigated as a fatal accident.
