INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Police say an off-duty sheriff's deputy was killed when his motorcycle crashed after apparently hitting a pothole.
State police say Marion County Deputy Eric Stofer was riding on a road in a rural area in the far southeastern part of Indianapolis when the crash happened Sunday evening.
Police say the 35-year-old Stofer lost control of the motorcycle, which crashed and ended up on top of him. Stofer wasn't wearing a helmet. Police said investigators don't consider alcohol use or speeding factors in the crash.
No other vehicles were involved and no one else was hurt.
