Crash in Elkhart leaves bicyclist dead

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – A crash near the intersection of CR 10 and CR 15 on the east side of Elkhart has turned fatal Saturday night around 4:40 p.m.

While driving west on CR 10, a 17 year-old-juvenile was driving a 2003 Jetta Volkswagen toward the intersection with CR 15.

As she approached, a 24-year-old man, Tyler Allen Carver, on a bicycle traveling north on CR 15 turned left onto CR 10 where the two collided.

Carver was taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but later succumbed to them and died.

The juvenile was not cited, but the crash is still under investigation.
