There was another hit-and-run accident in Indianapolis: this one taking place on September 17, 2013 around 1 p.m. and involving a pedestrian victim. Although police have not taken the driver of the hit-and-run motor vehicle into custody, witnesses informed police that the vehicle was a green Chevrolet Malibu. The driver struck a pedestrian who was walking near the 1700 block of Sheldon Street, near the intersection of Sheldon Street and 18th Street not far from downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
The good news is that police have identified the registered owner of the green Chevy Malibu as Felicia Moss (30 years old), but they have not yet made any arrests because it is not yet known who was driving the vehicle at the time of the collision.
The pedestrian’s name is Michael Robertson (59 years old), and Emergency Medical Services reported that Mr. Robertson was thrown 30 – 50 feet as a result of the pedestrian accident. Upon arrival, medical personnel transferred Michael Robertson to Wishard Hospital, where he is in critical condition.
