IMPD says the crash happened in the  7600 block of Southeastern Avenue near the Thirsty Horse Saloon, around 10:15 p.m.

A witness says the woman was heading southeast on Southeastern Avenue when she was hit by another motorcycle. The impact caused her to veer to the side and flip.

Someone who’d heard the crash from the Thirsty Horse Saloon told police, the driver of that second motorcycle then jumped off the bike, hopped in a pickup truck with someone else and drove off.

Other patrons from the Thirsty Horse came and picked up the man’s blue Harley Davidson out of the street and drove it off.

Officers tried to speak with several other witnesses at the scene, but they were all uncooperative.

The truck is an older model, blue pick-up.
