Indianapolis, IN – Just after 2 o’clock Saturday morning, troopers were called to investigate a hit-and-run crash, with no reported injuries, on I-70 westbound near the 77.8 mile marker. A caller had reported a two car collision in which one of the parties had fled the scene. The second vehicle, with rear end damage, was stopped in the left lane of I-70 and was on the phone with a 911 operator. Before troopers could get to the scene of the first crash, a motorcycle driven by 27 year old Kayla Gullett of Winchester Indiana, crashed into the rear end of the 2018 Chevrolet. Trooper Jordan Hall arrived on scene and found Ms. Gullett unconscious and not breathing. Despite life saving efforts, she was pronounced deceased on the scene.
Investigators have very little information about the vehicle that fled the scene of the original crash, however it should have heavy front end damage. Ms. Gullett was wearing a helmet and alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.
