INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 17, 2014) – Indianapolis Metropolitan police are investigating after a teenager was involved in a hit-and-run crash Friday morning on the south side.
Dispatchers tell FOX59 the teen was riding a bike near East Raymond Street and the I-65 ramp before being struck by a vehicle around 7:30 a.m. The car then took off. IMPD said they knew who the driver was and expected that person to step forward Friday. Police later confirmed they’d made an arrest in the case, saying Brian Harlow, 31, wanted to turn himself in.
Police said Harlow’s vehicle hit the bike’s back tire, sending the teen cyclist airborne. Harlow was arrested on a count of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury.
The teenager was taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, according to his father. The 16-year-old was on his way to Manual High School with some friends when he was hit.
