July 29, 2011 – Indianapolis, Ind. – According to a report by the Indy Star, an Indianapolis motorcyclist died Tuesday night, July 26, after crashing into an SUV.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said that Bobby D. Hubbard, 48, of Indianapolis, was riding his 1992 Honda motorcycle, at around 11:15 p.m. in the 5200 block of East 21st Street, when he collided with Keyondra Coe’s 1998 Dodge Durango.

Coe, 21, of Indianapolis, said that she was trying to find a friend’s house when she realized that she had passed it. She stopped her SUV and put it in reverse to back up. She says that when she saw the motorcycle approaching she tried to put her car back in drive to get out of the way.
