On July 10, around 3:20 a.m., Evansville Police Officers were called to the 1300 block of Florence Street for an assault in progress and a hit and run accident with injury.
When officers arrived they located the victim, who was in pain and had multiple injuries. Officers determined that the victim was standing in the street when a small, white, SUV pulled up to the victim and ran him over. The suspect vehicle also hit a parked car before driving away from the scene. Suspect information was provided to officers but they were not able to locate the suspect or suspect vehicle at that time. Officers discovered that there had been an altercation between several people, including the victim and suspect, prior to the accident.
The victim was taken to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 39-year-old Patrick Levell Adams.
