Fatality Accident at Louisiana St. and Mary St.


Ā On January 17th, around 8:50 a.m., Evansville Police Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Louisiana St. and Mary St. in reference to an EVSC school bus that had collided with a male on a bicycle. Officers arrived and found the adult male victim laying in the street next to the school bus. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. EPD Detectives, EPD Crime Scene Unit, and an EPD Accident Reconstructionist, were called to the scene of the accident to investigate. The Vanderburgh County Coronerā€™s Office was also called to the scene.Ā 

The driver of the bus fully cooperated with the investigation and was taken to a local hospital for a blood draw, which is normal protocol after a fatality accident. It appears that the school bus was traveling northbound on Mary St. and turned westbound onto Louisiana St. The bicyclist was traveling eastbound on Louisiana St. when they collided. There were no students or any other passengers on the school bus when the accident occurred.Ā
