Indianapolis, Indiana – July 23, 2011

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department states that a moped rider died Saturday after his vehicle collided with a car.

According to police, the time was about 2 a.m. when Joseph L. French reportedly entered the course of a car in pulling his moped into the intersection of Indiana 37 and Edgewood Avenue.

The individual behind the wheel of the car was 21-year-old Cassandra Orton. It is currently suspected that Mr. French’s vision may have been obstructed by a large object he was carrying at the time, but the investigation is ongoing.

Ms. Orton went to Wishard Hospital with possible broken bones in one of her hands. It is not known if Mr. French died before he could be transported from the scene.
