The coroner on Monday identified the person killed as 60-year-old Kevin D. Himsel.


INDIANAPOLIS — One person is dead after being hit by a vehicle on W. Washington Street early Monday morning.

According to IMPD, a person was found lying in the road around 8000 W. Washington Street around 5:40 a.m. The crash site is just west of S. Girls School Road.

IMPD says all drivers involved in the crash where the person was hit and killed stayed on the scene.

Police say after the person was fatally hit, there were several crashes afterwards, likely from drivers trying to avoid hitting the pedestrian’s body.

“[It’s] a case of people not paying attention when they drive,” said one woman who stopped to help the pedestrian. “He was crossing the street. It was dark. So people that drive a little crazy – you know, that’s probably went led to it. It was traumatic.”

The woman told us her vehicle was hit by another driver after she stopped to help.

That area of Washington Street is now partially reopened.
