Hamilton County sheriff's Deputy Bryant Orem said Friday that investigators believe Camp was riding on a street in the town about 20 miles north of Indianapolis when he lost control and crashed. The fatal injury was caused by the bicycle's handlebar.

Orem says a vehicle might have gotten close enough to Camp to startle him and make him lose control without striking him.

He says a passer-by found Camp, who wasn't wearing a helmet and suffered severe head injuries.
