An allegedly drunk driver struck and killed a Topeka man who was riding a bicycle near Ligonier last night. At 9:35 p-m police received a report that a vehicle had struck a bicyclist near 9679 West County Road 1200 North in Noble County.
The bicyclist – 23-year-old Richard Miller – was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver – 24-year-old Faron Yoder of Ligonier – continued down the road a short distance before leaving the road and striking a utility pole head on.
Yoder was transported to Parkview LaGrange Hospital because he was unresponsive following the crash. He suffered no apparent injuries and was later taken to the Noble County Jail on a preliminary charge of operating while intoxicated causing death.
The county line road which is 800 South in LaGrange County and 1200 North in Noble County was closed to allow NIPSCO to make repairs. You should plan on seeking an alternate route this morning.
