INDIANAPOLIS - A bicyclist was hit and killed by a school bus Thursday morning on the city's north side.
Dispatchers confirmed an Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) school bus and a man on his bike collided on Ditch and Westlane roads just before 7:30 a.m.
Investigators said the man, identified as Neil Kelty, was riding his bike west on Westlane Road, approaching the intersection with Ditch Road. The school bus was headed east.
When they both met at the intersection of Ditch and Westlane, investigators said the school bus was trying to make a turn left on Ditch when it hit Kelty.
Police are unsure at this point what the status of the traffic light was at the time of the crash -- whether it was yellow, whether the bus had the right-of-way, etc.
Kelty was reportedly wearing a helmet when he was struck by the bus.
Investigators said they don't believe the driver of the bus was speeding or drunk, but the driver of the bus will be tested for illegal intoxicants. Tests will also be done on the mechanisms of the bus.
There were no students on the bus at the time of the crash.
