On March 4, around 12:45 p.m., the Evansville Police Department was called to Pollack and Weinbach for a motor vehicle accident involving a bicycle and a vehicle. Before officers could arrive, a good Samaritan performed chest compressions on the cyclist until officers arrived. The first arriving officer took over chest compressions until an ambulance crew could assist.
The driver of the vehicle exited the Dollar Tree parking lot (2115 S. Weinbach Ave.) to go west on Pollack Ave. As he entered the roadway, he struck the bicyclist who was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Pollack.
While on scene of the accident the cyclist still had a pulse, but later died at a local hospital.
The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital where his blood could be drawn and sent to the Indiana State Police Laboratory.
The investigation is ongoing and the driver of the vehicle has not been charged with any offense pending lab work results from the state lab.
