A bicyclist was airlifted to Indianapolis after she was thrown from her bike when a truck collided with her in Westfield on May 12. On May 13, police announced Rachel Dannenberg, 41, of Westfield was in stable condition at St.Vincent Hospital on 86th Street.

According to WPD Cpt.

Police said the crash remains under investigation. No update was given on Dannenberg’s situation prior to press time.
