IMPD: Man killed in hit-and-run while riding bicycle

UPDATE: The man hit and killed Sunday night while riding his bike was identified as 63-year-old Willie E. Bryant, the Marion County Coroner’s Office said Monday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police say a man was killed Sunday night in a hit-and-run while riding his bicycle.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. near Calhoun Street and South Emerson Avenue.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers say the man was hit by a “white Chevrolet pickup with a black flatbed.” They say the driver of the truck left the scene.

The man’s death marked the second time in as many days that someone on a bicycle was hit and killed. A woman died after being hit by a vehicle Saturday night near Washington Park.

Investigators are asking anyone with information on Sunday’s hit-and-run to contact Detective Anderson at 317-327-3475.
