Mt. Vernon teacher dies after being struck by dump truck


An Indianapolis man is dead after it appears he walked into the path of a dump truck at approximately 2 p.m. April 2 in Carmel.

Police said Adam J. Bisesi, 35, died after being struck by a 2000 International dump truck on the U.S. 31 northbound exit ramp to 146th and 151st streets. Investigators say Bisesi stepped into the roadway and that the truck was not able to stop before hitting him.

No other vehicles or pedestrians were involved.

The ramp was closed for several hours as accident reconstructionists from the Carmel Police Dept. worked the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

On April 3, Mt. Vernon Community Schools Corp. issued a press release informing the public that Bisesi was seventh-grade language arts teacher at Mt. Vernon Middle School. He also advised the school’s Newspaper Club.

He was always quick with a smile and was a beloved member of the Mt. Vernon family,” the release stated. “He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. The staff and family at Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family, as well as his friends, students, fellow teachers and support staff.”

MVCSC said its crisis team has been alerted and counseling services will be offered to Mt. Vernon Middle School and Mt. Vernon High School students in the coming weeks.
