INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police said a man died after being hit and run over by four different cars on the city’s northwest side Friday night. None of the vehicles stopped, according to officials.

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Michael Fink, 68, was walking eastbound on W. 34th Street from the VFW near 34th and Moller Road when he was hit by a silver vehicle. Police said Fink had just left the VFW and was trying to cross W. 34th Street from the north side of the street, to the south side of the street in the 5200 block when he was hit.

After being hit by that car, Fink tried to crawl to the south side of the street, but he was hit by a black SUV that was driving eastbound on W. 34th Street. That vehicle also left the scene without stopping, police said.

IMPD officials said Fink was then hit by a dark pickup truck or light-colored van also heading eastbound on W. 34th Street.

A fourth vehicle, described as a white four-door car, also ran over Fink. That vehicle didn’t stop either, police said.

Witnesses were finally able to call an ambulance after the fourth car hit Fink. Police said Fink suffered “severe” injuries and died at the scene.

If you have any information on the cars involved in this deadly hit-and-run, call IMPD.
