    An Indianapolis man riding a motor scooter died Friday night when he was stuck by a passing car, police said.

    The crash happened around 10 p.m. Friday in the 3400 block of West U.S. 40 in Greenfield. Its cause remains under investigation by the Hancock County Fatal Accident Crash Team.

    Police say Randy Smith, 47, of Indianapolis, was riding in along U.S. 40 when he was hit by a car.

    The vehicle was driven by an 18-year-old female, whose name has not been released.

    Smith was pronounced dead by coroners at the scene, according to 911 records.

    The driver of a passing semi tractor-trailer witnesses the collision and provided a statement to police.

    The 18-year-old driver cooperated with the investigation and provided a blood sample to police – a common practice in the investigation of fatal accidents. Alcohol and drugs do not appear have played a role in the crash, police said.

    The investigation is ongoing.
