(LINTON) - The Greene County Sheriff's Department issued a news release this morning requesting any information from the public on a vehicle that may have been involved in a hit and run crash that drove into a crowd of pedestrians, seriously injuring four near the Green-Sullivan State Forest.

The Greene County Daily World reports, the accident happened just before midnight.

Police are looking for a older model GMC S-10 blue or black truck with a camper shell.

Police say the vehicle has damage to the front driver's side. The truck was believed to have struck a guard rail, resulting in damage on the truck's left side. The truck was reported to be missing an entire front headlight on the same side, and to have square headlight casings.

Vehicle was last seen traveling south on County Road 1400W from an area of County Road 2 South, near Greene-Sullivan State Forest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Greene County Sheriff's Department by calling 812-384-4411. Deputy Heath Murray is heading up the investigation.

Multiple AirEvac helicopters were scrambled to Greene County General Hospital early Tuesday morning.

Details were only emerging shortly after 2 a.m. on Tuesday, with the names of the victims and the still-sought suspect not yet released by police.

Just after 1 a.m., what was reported as an expected four AirEvac helicopters were landing at Greene County General Hospital where members of the Linton Fire Department and other emergency medical technicians were readying to airlift what was reported as four injured patients.

It was believed a total of six helicopters were going to land for the victims.

Ultimately, however, only four helicopters landed. Initial reports suggested only four victims, three children and one an adult.

Their gender, names, and ages were not available.

The children were bound for Riley Hospital in Indianapolis.
