Sign Put up at Scene of Officer's Fatal Crash

12/31/2010

A sign urging motorists to drive safely in memory of a motorcyclist killed in a crash involving an Indianapolis police officer has been posted in the city.

WISH-TV reports Friday that the city worked with the family of victim Eric Wells to put up the sign at the site of the August crash that killed Wells and injured two others who were stopped on motorcycles.

The Wells family filed a lawsuit this month against Officer David Bisard claiming "gross negligence." Bisard faces reckless homicide and other charges, though drunken driving charges were dropped because a blood test wasn't taken by someone legally certified.

Three high-ranking police officers were demoted for their handling of the crash scene. An internal probe concluded the investigation was botched.
