Few clues in I-70 hit and run fatality

As of press time, authorities were still attempting to find a vehicle that fatally struck a pedestrian Monday evening on I-70 eastbound, near the I-65 split.

Indiana State Police responded to the scene after receiving a report that there was a body on the pavement in front of a pickup truck there.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Andy Dion Richmond, 29, of Indianapolis, was refueling a 1991 Chevrolet pickup on the emergency berm of I-70 EB. Evidence at the scene suggests that the pickup and the victim were both on the emergency berm past the white fog line and were not in the lane of travel. The gas receptacle on the truck is on the left side, closest to the lane of traffic.

According to police, Richmond was struck by an unknown eastbound I- 70 vehicle that did not stop.

Richmond was pronounced dead at the scene.

So far, no eyewitnesses have come forward, although police say it was rush hour so there had to be numerous motorists going by at the time.

ISP Sgt. Richard W. Myers, public information officer for the department, said no one stopped at the scene. He added that perhaps other motorists thought they saw something, but just weren’t sure so they kept going.

Police are asking any motorists who were traveling the interstate at that time and may have seen something to call the ISP Indianapolis District at 899-8577.
