Early morning on June 10th, a car rear-
ended a Muncie teenager and his passenger who were riding a moped on Cornbread Road. The teen driving the moped was critically injured. Doctors placed the injured teen on life support, and the coroner pronounced him brain dead at 12:30 p.m.
The driver of the car told police he did not see the moped in front of him. Police suspect alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash and are likely to charge the driver for the crash. They have arrested the driver on a previous warrant.
The moped driver’s passenger also suffered minor injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.
