Bicyclist killed after late night crash in Fishers
FISHERS, Ind. — A bicyclist died in Fishers after a car struck and killed him late Tuesday night.
The man was going east on 126th Street and attempting to cross State Road 37 when it happened. Police said an SUV struck the man first; another vehicle hit him and dragged him. The 28-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
Certain areas of the road are dark at night, and that may have been a factor in the crash.
“Riding a bicycle at night is definitely a dangerous venture to take,” said Sgt. Wayne Druelinger with Fishers police. “If people are going to be out on their bikes at night, especially in an unlit area, we just ask to use caution, wear the proper safety equipment – very reflective outer wear, helmets, stuff like that.”
Police were checking to see if any nearby businesses may have surveillance video from the crash.
This isn’t the first fatal crash in the vicinity. In July, a woman was hit by two cars and killed at 131st Street and State Road 37, about a half-mile north of Tuesday night’s crash. In September 2015, a woman died after being struck just up the road at the 135th Street intersection.
