INDIANAPOLIS - Police were searching for a hit-and-run suspect after a teen died from the injuries he suffered in a crash Tuesday morning.
Nicholas King, 18, was driving a scooter near the 4000 block of North High School Road just after midnight, officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
He drove into the path of an oncoming vehicle and both he and a juvenile passenger were ejected from the scooter, police said.
King was taken to Eskenazi Health in critical condition. He later died from his injuries, police said Thursday.
The juvenile passenger was not seriously injured and was arrested in connection to an unrelated incident.
Witnesses told police the suspect vehicle appeared to be speeding. Police were looking for a gray or silver 1996 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable, possibly a station wagon, with front-end damage.
Anyone who was in the area or has information on the suspect vehicle is asked to call investigators at 317-327-6549.
