GRANT COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA) - Indiana State Police are searching for the driver of a commercial truck that struck and killed a 20-year-old Marion man on Friday morning.

Troopers were called to the 261-mile mark of the interstate about 8 a.m. They found Michael Nash lying in the median. He died before he could be taken to a hospital.

The investigation determined that Nash was likely struck shortly after 1:35 a.m., as he rode a bicycle along the southbound lanes. Evidence shows a semi-tractor struck Nash. Anyone with information about this case should contact the Indiana State Police by calling (800)382-0689.
