20-year-old cyclist dead after Hamilton County crash

HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - Investigators are looking for the driver who hit a man on a bike Monday night in Hamilton County, taking his life.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said just after 9:30 p.m. Monday, Cicero police officers were sent to the area of Main and Neal streets after a man was found on the side of the road with a bicycle on top of him. That man has been identified as Nicholas Camp, 20, of Cicero.

Investigators said Camp had been riding south on Main Street when the left handlebar of his bike was struck by a passing car, causing him to lose control of the bike and crash. 

Camp reportedly had severe trauma to the head. He was taken to Riverview Hospital, then airlifted to IU-Methodist Hospital, where he died.

Authorities said the driver that hit Camp may have been unaware they struck his bike. The vehicle would have been traveling south on Main between Neal and Buckeye streets at roughly 9:40 p.m. Monday (see map), and may have damage to the passenger-side mirror.

Anyone with information on this vehicle or driver should call Sgt. Brian Niec of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office at 317-776-4106.
