A bicycle rider is dead after a hit-and-run crash early Wednesday morning. The call came in to St. Joseph County Fatal Alcohol Crash Team just after 3 a.m. Wednesday to the 20000 block of Ireland Road with reports of a body on the road. Upon arrival, officials pronounced the male dead at the scene.
This happening the same day the Indiana hands-free law goes into effect which prohibits drivers from holding a cellphone while driving. F.A.C.T.. is unsure if distracted driving was a result of this incident.
Anyone with information on the driver are asked to contact the St. Joseph County Police Department.
