Colts offer $15K reward in search for hit-and-run suspect

Indianapolis Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay announced Monday that he and punter Pat McAfee will kick in a total of $15,000 reward money in the search for a hit-and-run suspect.

A 78-year-old woman was killed by a driver last November, and police have come up dry in a search to find the party responsible.

From the team:

Indianapolis Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay has pledged $10,000 and punter Pat McAfee has added $5,000 to the reward, which is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a driver who struck and killed 78-year-old Anita Wernsing of Fayette, Ind. The driver left the scene following the incident. 

Wernsing was leaving Mt. Tabor Primitive Church on the 7000 block of South State Road 267 on November 25, 2012 when she was struck. Boone County Sheriff’s Department investigators said that the vehicle that hit Wernsing was a dark SUV that was traveling northbound on 267. 

Police have asked anyone with information on the case to call them at 765-482-1412 or send the department an email at: tips@co.boone.in.us.
