A vigil will be held, Wednesday, to honor an Indianapolis woman hit and killed by a pickup truck this week.
Metro police said 63-year-old Kathy Clark was found dead near the intersection of Meridian and Troy, Monday. Detectives believe she died 17 hours earlier when a pickup truck slammed into her.
Surveillance video from the Thirsty Turtle bar shows a small figure walking southbound on Meridian, Sunday night. The person exits the frame and then bright headlights enter the screen. Another surveillance camera fixed on two people outside the bar shows them suddenly react to a loud thud. They told Fox 59 they couldn’t see anything in the dark and thought the truck ran over a garbage bag or boxes in the road.
However, in broad daylight it was clear there was a body laying on the side of the road next to a purse and an umbrella.
Clark worked at the City Thrift Store on East Washington. Her co-workers, who did not want to be identified, told Fox 59 she was a special lady.
“She touched a lot of people’s hearts,” said a co-worker. “Customers are asking about her.. she’s one of a kind.”
They said she liked karaoke, dancing, and loved her job.
She never missed a day,” said a co-worker. “When she didn’t come in yesterday… she’s always here, you know, when the 8 bus gets here at 7:30… when she wasn’t with him, we knew something was wrong.”
A vigil to honor Clark will be held on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Morningstar Church parking lot across the street from the crash.
Police are still looking for information on the pickup truck. It is described as a light colored Ford F-150 with a camper shell. It is missing a headlight and a mirror on the right side. If you have any information, you are urged to call police.
