More Details in Hit and Run Fatality

(Michigan City, IN) - More information is being released on a pedestrian struck and killed by a hit and run driver in Michigan City.  The identity of the victim has not been released yet because of difficulty notifying next of kin, said La Porte County Coroner Lynn Swanson.


Swanson said the adult male victim was white, wearing jeans and a black coat.  She also said the man was pushing a shopping cart containing undisclosed items scattered throughout the area from impact by the vehicle.


The man was found deceased on U.S. 12 at Martin Luther King Dr. by a motorist around 6:30 a.m. Swanson said the victim had not been dead for very long because his body was still somewhat warm to the touch.  She said the shopping cart belonged to Barney’s Supermarket in New Buffalo.  Swanson also revealed the man was from Iowa and had train tickets dated March 28 from Chicago to Niles Michigan.


No arrests have been reported in the hit and run fatality.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Michigan City Police.
