INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — A professional fisherman from Oklahoma is hoping police can find the driver who hit him on Interstate 70 near downtown Indianapolis.

Kyle Cortiana said he was on his way home from a fishing tournament in New York when his truck and the fishing boat he was pulling were T-boned. It happened over the weekend near Lucas Oil Stadium.
