5 Cyclists Killed in Michigan Hit-and-Run

Five cyclists were killed and another four hurt in a hit-and-run incident in the US state of Michigan, police say. The cyclists were struck by a pickup truck that was seen being driven erratically only minutes earlier, police in Kalamazoo said. The driver of the truck, a 50-year-old man from Michigan, fled the scene and was arrested nearby soon afterwards. A hospital spokesman said one of the injured cyclists was in a serious condition, BBC reported. Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeffrey Getting told a news conference there had been a number of alerts about the blue Chevrolet’s erratic driving, but that a police chase was not underway when it crashed. One witness, Markus Eberhard, told Kalamazoo broadcaster WOOD the truck almost drove over his foot before heading toward the cyclists. “I saw a bunch of bikes hit the front of his truck and a couple of them flew,” he said.
