Authorities investigate body found in White River in Lawrence County

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 27, 2015)—Police are seeking information about a hit-and-run crash Sunday night that injured a 54-year-old woman.

Police believe the vehicle sustained damage to the front passenger side as a result of the crash.

Authorities say heavy rain in the area was likely a factor in the cause of the accident.
