A 25-year-old Massachusetts man was killed while riding his bicycle on a city street in a hit-and-run accident. The alleged driver of the truck that hit the cyclist was located and arrested two days later. He is currently being held on bail for charges of drunk driving and other traffic violations from earlier in the year. In the hit-and-run incident, he is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, driving with a suspended license and speeding.
The bicyclist was hit as he was crossing Boston Road around 3 a.m. on New Year's Day. The driver of the truck that hit him reportedly never stopped, and police say that they located pieces of the bicycle nearly a mile away from the accident scene. Police officers located the Ford F-150 on Tavistock Street nearby, and the man arrested in connection with the hit and run is the owner of the truck. The investigation is ongoing.
