FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The Northeast Indiana Forensic Center identifies the 15 year-old victim from Friday's bicycle accident on N. Clinton as Brian A. Craig of Fort Wayne.

The autopsy was performed Sunday afternoon.

Craig was pronounced dead at Parkview Hospital at 6:34P.M. on Friday after he was hit by a tan Cadillac while riding his bike on N. Clinton.

From Friday:

A 15 year old boy riding a bicycle was struck and killed at the 3000 block of North Clinton near the Auto Zone a little after 6 p.m. Friday.

The boy and two other teens were on bikes trying to cross eastbound on 3000 block of North Clinton. The first two were able to safely cross, the 3rd was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound on North Clinton.

The victim was critical at the scene and later died at a local hospital.

The driver of vehicle was also transported to a local hospital for a blood draw -- which is standard procedure in these situations.

The road was shut down from State to Edgewater for several hours so the Fort Wayne Police could reconstruct the accident.

We'll have more on this developing story tonight on Indiana's NewsCenter.
