INDIANAPOLIS — A second victim in a fatal hit-and-run crash on U.S. 52 has died of her injuries. According to the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office and Tippecanoe County Coroner Donna Avolt, Kimberly McDole died at Methodist Hospital at 5:45 Monday morning.

McDole has been in critical condition in a hospital since she was struck in a hit-and-run crash on Aug. 1. Yariel Butler, 19, is charged for leaving the scene of a crash that left McDole on life support, 50-year-old William "Eric" Peacock dead and a tow truck driver injured.
