Elkhart County - A Millersburg woman was killed after being hit by a car Friday morning, Aug. 29.
Around 5:35 a.m., Jennifer Myers, 24, was traveling west on C.R. 38 east of near Goshen city limits.
Myers was thrown off her moped, according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
Myers was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries. It’s unclear right now if she was wearing a helmet.
James D.R. Fugate, 29, of Wawaka, Ind. was driving the car. He was arrested at the scene on an unrelated warrant and taken to the Elkhart County Jail.
Police say Fugate didn’t see the moped and couldn’t stop in time before hitting Myers. Speed may have been a factor in this crash.
Police are still investigating the incident. So far, no charges have been filed against Fugate for this particular crash.
