Teenager Dies After Being Hit By Pickup Truck

17-year-old Dalton Bandy was struck near the intersection of 38th St. and Emerson Ave. just before 7 a.m. Thursday.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A 17-year-old boy has died after being hit by a pickup truck.

Dalton Bandy was struck just before 7 a.m., near the intersection of 38th Street and Emerson Avenue.

Police say Bandy was running to catch up with a school bus when he was hit by a silver pickup truck traveling southbound on Emerson.

A nearby bus driver saw the student get hit. The bus driver told police said the student typically rides the bus farther down the road, so police believe he was trying to catch up because he was running late, reports RTV6.

WTHR reports Bandy was a student at Lighthouse East Charter School.
