Shortly after 6:00am this morning Fishers police officers and emergency personnel from the Fishers Department of Fire and Emergency Services responded to a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian.
This crash occurred in the 11700 block of Olio Road as many pedestrians were preparing to participate in the annual running of the Geist Mini Marathon. Information at this time suggests a 2012 Thomas School Bus was attempting to turn northbound onto Olio Road from an entrance/exit to a shopping center located just north of 116th Street. According to witnesses and evidence at the scene the pedestrian was running northbound in the crosswalk when she was struck by the bus.
Initially, the pedestrian was transported to IU Saxony Hospital and later to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. At this time the pedestrian is listed in critical condition.
The Fishers Police Department’s Crash Reconstruction Team responded to collect evidence and investigate the crash. At this time it does not appear that drugs or alcohol were a factor.
