A 39-year-old woman from Whiteland, Indiana, is dead after a motorist hit her motorcycle last Saturday morning in Indianapolis and then fled the scene.

TheIndyChannel.com reports that the crash occurred just before 1 a.m. in the 400 block of North Lynhurst Drive, where Lynhurst intersects with Ida Street. There a northbound Jeep Cherokee rear-ended a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, causing its driver to lose control and fall off her motorcycle.

“The Jeep continued northbound for a few blocks, then stopped, and a male subject fled from the vehicle,” said Anthony Schneider, Indianapolis police public information officer. “The female driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Witnesses say the motorcyclist had been traveling at a high rate of speed and was being pursued by the Jeep. Shots were also reportedly fired.

In fact, The Daily Journal reports that police now think the hit-and-run may be connected to a shots fired call they received around the same time. Police were told that shots rang out and the motorcyclist was seen leaving a home on the 700 block of Norfolk Street, which is about a mile and a half from where she died.
