CICERO, Ind. (AP) - Investigators say a 20-year-old bicyclist who was killed in a crash in a central Indiana town wasn’t struck by a vehicle.

Nicholas Camp of Cicero was pronounced dead at an Indianapolis hospital after he was injured in the crash in Cicero July 14.

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.
