Cyclist Killed in Apparent Hit-and-Run Crash

So, following up on the request for information I posted earlier, it appears the cyclist in question was involved in an apparent hit and run crash.

About 8:15 a.m., a passer-by reported a bicyclist in a ditch in the 12600 block of N Midwest Boulevard, just north of NE 122, Patty said.

The bicyclist, identified only as a white male, was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.

“This appears to be a hit-and-run,” Patty said.

I still find it absolutely disturbing and wrong that this kind of incident can be referred to as an accident.  Crash, attack or vehicular homicide all seem appropriate, but when it comes to a hit-and-run I can hardly think that the word accident applies.

It still appears that the cyclist has not yet been identified, so if you can provide additional information please contact the police.
