HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - Investigators said a 20-year-old cyclist lost his life after crashing his own bicycle, not by getting hit by a passing car.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said just after 9:30 p.m. July 14, 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 was identified as Nicholas Camp, 20, of Cicero.
During their initial investigation, officials 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.
This past Friday, however, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said it was discovered that no vehicle actually struck Camp or his bike. Investigators said evidence pointed to Camp losing control of the bicycle and crashing, with his handlebar causing the fatal injury, severe trauma to the head.
After he was found, he was taken to Riverview Hospital, then airlifted to IU-Health Methodist Hospital, where he died.
