INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police are interviewing a person of interest in connection with the hit-and-run of two juveniles at the Indiana State Fair Tuesday night.

State police believe the incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. near the infield on the fairgrounds.

During a press briefing, Sgt. Stephen Wheeles said the two people struck have very minor injuries and were not transported to a hospital.

Sgt. Wheeles said the suspect vehicle, a Toyota Camry, fled the scene. The vehicle has been found and officers say it was a rental car.

Officers say it’s too early to say if the incident was accidental, but it’s concerning when anyone chooses to leave the scene.
