Metro Police have arrested one person in connection to a fatal hit and run on the city's northeast side.

Saturday morning, IMPD arrested 23-year-old Morgan Mannix on a preliminary charge of Failure to Stop After an Accident Causing Death.

Officers were sent to the 7400 block of North Shadeland Ave. at about 5:30 Saturday morning when a caller to 911 reported a person lying on the ground at the corner of the intersection.

Responding officers located a deceased white male, later identified as 23-year-old Alex Trabert. Preliminary reports show the victim was walking on the west side of Shadeland Ave. when he was struck.

IMPD detectives located Mannix's 2011 black Toyota Camry as the vehicle involved in the accident and arrested the driver shortly after. She was transported to Wishard Hospital for a blood draw and then taken into custody.
