(Michigan City, IN) - Michigan City Police are investigating a hit-and-run that happened New Year’s Eve, leaving a local woman seriously injured.
According to reports, Angel Egmer of La Porte was struck by a black Mustang after leaving Barker Pub in Michigan City Sunday night. The car allegedly drove over her a second time before fleeing the scene.
The driver was described by witnesses as an African American male.
Egmer was taken to Franciscan Hospital and later transported to Indianapolis with serious injuries, including a lacerated liver, fractured jaw, and missing teeth. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with Egmer’s expenses. According to the post, Egmer's jaw will be wired shut for six weeks, and she will miss work during that time. She can only consume liquids, but cannot use a straw due to the missing teeth.
Police are looking for any information from the public related to the event. Contact Oficers Patrick Lewis or Christopher Manns with the Michigan City Police Department.
