Police are looking for two vehicles they believe struck the woman around 10:30 p.m. near Crown Hill Cemetery.

INDIANAPOLIS — Police are looking for two vehicles, one of which has been identified as a white Ford truck, that reportedly hit and killed a woman walking along a northwest Indianapolis street.

An IMPD spokesperson said police got a call just after 10:30 p.m. Friday of a person down in the roadway on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street near 33rd Street. Officers arrived to find an adult female in the road, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe the woman was struck in the northbound lanes of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, then went into the southbound lanes, where she was struck by a second vehicle. 

Police said neither vehicle stopped at the scene of the crash and officers are now searching for those vehicles. The spokesperson said car parts found in the area may help investigators determine a make and model of the vehicles involved. 

On Saturday, IMPD identified one of the vehicles. Investigators are looking for a 2017-2018 white Ford F250/350 with an upper windshield amber light bar and camper shell/truck cap. 

Police said the truck, which may be connected to the hit-and-run, has damage to its driver’s side headlight. It’s unclear if the truck is believed to be the first or the second car to hit the woman. 

The identity of the victim has not been shared by authorities.

Police are asking anyone with information about the woman’s death, including those who locate a vehicle matching that description, to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS.
