(Michigan City, IN) - Questions are being raised about a possible accident involving a city-owned vehicle by the mayor of Michigan City.
According to Michigan City Police, the Indiana State Police were brought in to conduct an independent investigation.
Mayor Duane Parry was not at the city council meeting Tuesday where Councilman Sean Fitzpatrick raised the issue. Fitzpatrick is reaching out to the public to try and fill in the blanks.
“Is this what happened? Did this occur? Was law enforcement contacted? Is there a process where this vehicle is being repaired? Where is the vehicle? If these things did occur, I would like to know what’s the next step in the process,” Fitzpatrick asked.
When reached today, Councilman Paul Przybylinski said things would be investigated.
The council would have started asking questions during Tuesday’s council meeting, but the mayor, who’s usually present for city council meetings, was not in attendance, according to Przybylinski.
“The mayor was suspiciously absent at our last council meeting, but I’m very sure there’s going to be additional questions raised about it,” Przybylinski said.
The alleged accident reportedly happened at Washington Park during the Great Lakes Grand Prix festivities nearly two weeks ago. So far, efforts to reach Parry have not been successful.
