INDIANAPOLIS - Family members of a cyclist killed in a bus crash this week say they're trying to remember him doing what he loved, and not focus on the tragic circumstances surrounding his death.
Flowers and personal effects mark the scene where Neil Kelty, an avid cyclist, was killed Thursday morning while riding his bike to work.
Kelty was wearing a helmet, but still died from his injuries.
On Friday, his cousin Geoff Kelty visited the spot for closure, and to remember Neil, who he described as a man on the right track.
"[He'd] graduated IU and he was just starting out here in Indianapolis and getting himself established," Geoff said. "And he was going to be getting married in a couple months as well."
Kelty grew up in Fort Wayne, where his parents still live. They said they want their son remembered as a good person who loved riding his bike.
IndyCog Executive Director Kevin Whited says he's never seen people react to a death the way they have to Kelty's.
"I think it's because he was a bike commuter, riding to work, minding his own business," Whited said. "He had all his gear on, lights going, the whole nine yards."
Local cycling groups like IndyCog are working out the details of a memorial ride and fundraiser for Neil's fiancée and family.
Indianapolis police are still investigating the crash, and say toxicology results from the blood draw of the bus driver, standard procedure in any fatal crash, are still pending.
