One dead, one injured in hit-and-run

Indianapolis police are seeking a hit-and-run driver who ran down two brothers pushing a shopping cart on West Morris Street late Saturday night. David Smith, 33, was killed and his brother, Jason Pedigo, 28, was severely injured in the incident. Pedigo, who suffered a broken hip and injuries to his neck and lung, said a woman driving a red Ford stopped and said, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to do it,” before leaving the scene. The brothers were on their way to get beer about 11:45 p.m. when they were struck. Some witnesses said they had to swerve around the brothers because they were walking in the middle of the street, but Pedigo said they were walking on the side of the road.
