INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Police say they don't know why a pedestrian, who was killed Saturday after trying to cross a four-lane road, stepped in front of a patrol car with its emergency lights and siren operating.
Indianapolis metropolitan police Patrolman Michael Kavanaugh, a five-year veteran, had a green light on Moller Road at the intersection with 34th Street on the Westside when the patrol car struck the man shortly before 2 a.m., said police Sgt. Matthew Mount.
