A Centerville, Indiana, man remained in critical condition Tuesday morning after being struck by a vehicle in Indianapolis on Monday, Dec. 16.

At about 6:45 p.m., emergency crews were called to the ramp from I-65 northbound to I-465 eastbound on the city’s south side for reports of a pedestrian struck.

Upon arrival, they found a man lying on the road critically injured. Police later identified him as Michael Moore, 59, of Centerville.

Investigating officers believe Moore pulled his vehicle to the shoulder for a possible tire issue. When he got out of the car to check the problem, he was struck by a passing vehicle. There were two other occupants in the disabled vehicle that witnessed the crash.

Police said the vehicle that struck Moore did not stop and left the scene. Moore was transported to an Indianapolis-area hospital by ambulance and was initially listed in critical condition.

At this time, there is no vehicle description available. The striking vehicle should have damage to the front passenger side, possibly a broken headlight.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and there is no further information to release. Officers are unsure if snow contributed to this crash.
