    Police said a second accident involving a pedestrian within an hour of another could lead to a second fatality.

    Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said at about 7:30 p.m Wednesday they were called to Lynhurst Drive and Seerley Creek Road, on the city’s southwest side, for a report of a person down.

    When officers arrived, they found a semi-conscious teen with obvious signs of trauma and trouble breathing, IMPD said. The teen was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

    Witnesses told police the teen was riding a bike in the southbound lane of Lynhurst and was struck by a southbound SUV, throwing him into the northbound lanes. A second vehicle then struck the teen, police said.

    The driver of the SUV remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, IMPD said, but the second vehicle that hit the teen left the scene. Police are looking for a white Dodge Neon with a spoiler on the back. It should have damage on the front.

    Police are also seeking help to identify the teen victim. He is a white male, and he was riding a red bicycle, possibly with silver handles. No other description was available.

    About a half hour earlier, a woman was struck and killed as she walked in the area of Madison Avenue and East County Line Road, at the Marion/Johnson county line.
