Hobart, IN — Hobart Police are urgently requesting public assistance following a fatal hit-and-run incident early Wednesday morning. 

According to police reports at around 7:12 AM, a routine patrol officer discovered the body of a 59-year-old Lake Station man, whose identity is being withheld pending family notification, on the 6700 block of East 37th Avenue, near the Deep River Bridge.

The vehicle, believed to be a gray 2005-2010 Honda Odyssey with passenger side damage, fled the scene post-collision.

Authorities are appealing to anyone with information to contact Officer Tommie Tatum at or call the Hobart Police at 219-942-1125. In their quest for justice, the police have released a stock image of the suspected vehicle model, hoping it will aid in their search for the perpetrator.
