DALLAS (AP) — Police say a driver in Dallas struck a bicyclist and then drove a half-mile with the man lodged in the windshield before dumping him in an alley and driving away.
Nineteen-year-old Silverio Alaniz is charged with causing an accident involving death and was being held Thursday at the Dallas County jail on a $25,000 bond.
Investigators say Alaniz admitted to striking the bicyclist, an unidentified 54-year-old man, when they tracked him Wednesday evening to a residence about two miles from the alley.
The man was later found in the alley and taken to a hospital where he was declared dead. It was not clear how long the victim was in the alley before being found.
Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Alaniz who could comment on the charge.
