MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (April 14, 2015)— A teenage boy was killed after being hit by a car in Madison County, just west of Pendleton.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office says a group of four teens were walking along State Road 13 near County Road 800 around 4:45 p.m. when for an unknown reason Peirce Resler, 14, stepped onto the roadway and was hit.

Resler was Life-Lined to Methodist Hospital with serious internal and head injuries. He was pronounced dead Tuesday evening.

The 19-year-old driver of the vehicle was taken to Saxony Hospital near Fishers for evaluation. Investigators await toxicology reports, but there were no observed indications at that time to charge the driver, who cooperated with the investigation.
