"A teenage bicyclist was killed Monday morning when he rode into a semi trailer as it traveled down East Main Street, authorities said.
Joseph E. Jordan, 16, 607 S. Hutchison St., died from a severe head injury at Main and Grant streets about 11 a.m., according to Delaware County Coroner James Clevenger.
The truck driver, Larry Pennington, 57, Brownsburg, was not at fault and could not have avoided the tragedy, said Sgt. Brad Arey, supervisor of the Muncie Police Department's accident reconstruction team.
Jordan, a freshman at Southside High School, and a 13-year-old Northside Middle School student skipped school Monday to hang out, police said.
The friend witnessed the accident but left the scene, police said.
"He was shook up," Arey said. "I think he was nervous."
They found him later in the day at Jordan's home.
Both boys were on bikes, though Jordan was riding a bike he had borrowed earlier that morning from the boyfriend of a family friend, Arey said.
The bike owner told police the teenager asked to use the bike to ride to a nearby soup kitchen, Arey said.
Jordan had a bag of food with him when he died, Arey said.
Police shut down Main Street for about two hours and used yellow tape to mark off the accident scene from Ohio Avenue to just west of Grant Street.
Inspectors from the Indiana Department of Transportation studied the truck after the wreck and did not find any violations, Arey said.
The truck was partially full and hauling auto parts."
