NOBLESVILLE, IND. (October, 11, 2014) — A pedestrian was rushed to the hospital in critical condition late Friday night after being hit by two vehicles in Noblesville. He has since died of his injuries.
Police have identified the victim as 18-year-old Frank Jose Alvarenga, of Noblesville.
It happened around 11:45 p.m. near the intersection of 191st Street and Golden Meadow Way. Based upon witness statements, police believe the Alvarenga was walking on or near the roadway when a 2007 Buick Rendezvous traveling westbound on 191st Street hit him. A witness said they saw a person near the westbound lane right before being struck. Police say evidence suggests the man was hit a second time by a 2000 Mercury Sable, headed eastbound on 191st Street.
Both drivers stopped immediately and attempted to render aid. Alvarenga was taken in critical condition to Riverview Health, where he died a short time later.
The driver of the Buick, 26-year-old Amy Leap of Noblesville, was not injured, nor were any of the five passengers in Leap’s vehicle.
The driver of the Mercury, 22-year-old Gabrielle Shepherd, also of Noblesville, was not hurt either.
Members of the Accident Reconstruction Unit were called to the scene to collect evidence. 191st Street was closed between S.R. 17 and Golden Meadow Way for about three hours.
Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact Accident Investigator Sgt. Matt McGovern at (317) 773-1300.
