INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) —  After a manhole cover is reported to have popped up and struck a car, IMPD now says they can’t find evidence of the incident happening.

Just before 9:30 p.m. Friday, a manhole cover was reported to have flown off and struck a vehicle at the intersection of Michigan Street and Sherman Avenue.

IMPD investigated but could not locate the vehicle.

An IMPD officer on the scene believes a car may have knocked the cover off while driving.

In the meantime, cones have been placed around the hole to warn drivers.

Brandi Davis-Handy with IPL says that the company does not have any underground facilities in that area and no reports of an incident in their system. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
