INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis police are looking for a vehicle suspected in a fatal hit-and-run Saturday.
A bicyclist riding her bike around 10:45 a.m. this morning told police she discovered a body in a ditch on the 8800 block of Township Line Road.
The body was identified as 22-year-old Patrick Hurd of Merrillville. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators believe Hurd was walking north on Township Line Road sometime after midnight Saturday when he was struck by an unknown vehicle, also traveling northbound. Investigators believe the force of the vehicle's impact caused the victim to travel into the ditch.
Police believe Hurd was likely on his way back to a friend's house from a nearby gas station.
Investigators do not have a description of the vehicle, which fled, but believe it should have moderate to significant front passenger side damage.
Anyone with information is urged to contract Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS, especially anyone who was driving or walking on Township Line Road around or after midnight, or who may remember seeing someone in the area walking or riding a skateboard.
