INDIANAPOLIS — A teenager was injured after being struck by an IMPD patrol car at E. Washington St. and N. Ritter Ave. Monday afternoon.

The incident happened at the same intersection where Hannah Crutchfield, 7, was hit and killed by a car last month.

According to IMPD, the officer was turning at E. Washington St. onto N. Ritter Ave. driving southbound to westbound, when they looked at someone who appeared to be flagging down the officer.

The officer struck a teen boy riding a bicycle as he was making the turn. The teen received minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene according to police.
