Hit and run kills bicycle rider

A 21-year-old was struck by a hit and run driver in a fatal accident while riding his bicycle. The bicycle rider was airlifted to Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after the 9:15 p.m. accident. The state police said that the driver of a white pickup truck hit the bicycle rider as he was heading westbound, then left the scene of the accident.

The bicycle rider suffered from serious injuries. His identity was withheld until relatives could be notified of the accident and the rider's condition. Later, media outlets aired the story and the description of the vehicle. Media sources reported that the truck most likely had damage to the passenger side and the hood, and described the driver as being white, about 40 years old, having a stocky build and curly hair.

Police put out a search for the hit and run driver and witnesses identified a white pickup truck with a topper. They said that the truck possibly had a company logo on it. Police believed that alcohol was a factor in the crash.

A later news story said that the man hit was 20 years old, not 21 years old. The media outlet reported that a 57-year-old man turned himself in to police after he saw information about the accident on the television. Police said that the man was cooperative and that the investigation into the accident is still ongoing. By then, media sources learned that the bicycle rider graduated from high school in 2010 and was supposed to join the Marine this coming July.
