Entry Description

Dunreith – This afternoon around 1:20 p.m. a bicyclist was killed when the bike he was riding on US 40 was struck from behind by a Chevrolet Avalanche. Darrell Smith, age 58 of Richmond, was pronounced dead at the crash scene just east of Dunreith by the Henry County Coroner.

Preliminary investigation suggests the driver of the Avalanche, Jonathan Wright, age 28 of Knightstown, didn’t see the bicyclist who was riding east bound in the right lane, along the white fog line. Smith was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash but no reflective or high visibility clothing.

Trooper Doug Snyder is investigating the crash, and was assisted at the scene by Trooper Kris Martin, the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Dunreith Fire Department, New Castle EMS and the Henry County Coroner.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends whether riding daytime, dawn, dusk, bad weather, or at night, bicyclists should wear neon, fluorescent or other bright colors to be most easily seen. Wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights.
