Person Struck and Killed by IMPD Officer
A pedestrian has been struck and killed by an IMPD Officer.
The accident happened just before 10 last night near 42nd Street and Emerson Avenue on the city’s east side. Police said the officer was headed southbound on Emerson and had a green light when the pedestrian stepped into the road and was struck.
The officer was on duty but not on a call at the time of the accident, so no police lights or sirens were active and speed does NOT appear to be a factor.
Investigators took blood from the officer to test for intoxication, which is standard policy.
