 In Michigan City....police are looking for a semi truck that fled after fatally striking a person outside a motel this morning.

According to police, officers located the body of a female before 10 a.m. (CST) in the gravel portion of the parking lot at King's Inn at 200 Kieffer Road just west of U.S 421.

Witnesses told investigators she was struck by what appeared to be a tanker truck driven by a female. The semi was traveling eastbound through the parking lot when for unknown reasons hit the female pedestrian, police said.

Police said the cab of the truck last seen heading toward nearby Interstate 94 was red.

The name of the victim was being withheld until next of kin was notified.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the driver was asked to contact Michigan City Police at (219) 874-3221.

An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday to further the ongoing investigation, police said.
