Family Sues Indianapolis For $3.9M In Officer Crash

INDIANAPOLIS – Relatives of a motorcyclist killed in a crash involving an Indianapolis police officer say they plan to sue the city for about $3.9 million.

The Indianapolis Star and WISH-TV say lawyers for the family of Eric Wells notified the city of their intention Sept. 8. That's required under Indiana law before a lawsuit can be filed against a government entity.

The 30-year-old Wells died and two other people were injured Aug. 6 when Officer David Bisard's squad car plowed into two motorcycles stopped at an intersection.

Prosecutors dropped drunken driving charges against Bisard because the blood tests weren't done properly, but Bisard still faces reckless homicide and other charges.

City Attorney Samantha Karn declined comment Tuesday.
