Police seek hit-and-run driver in Grand Prairie death of bicyclist

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) — Police are looking for the driver of a car that struck and killed a bicyclist on a Dallas-area road then allegedly stopped and looked at the victim before driving away.

Grand Prairie police say the crash around 6 a.m. Sunday killed Calvin Middleton Jr. of nearby Cedar Hill. Police say two women were in the sedan.

The victim’s brother, Shon Middleton, told KTVT-TV that a detective told him police think the driver got out, glanced at the victim, then got back into the vehicle and fled. KXAS-TV reports police say the victim wore protective gear and was bicycling legally on the road.

Grand Prairie police say the car, a mid-2000’s black Chevy Impala, has front end damage. The passenger side headlight is out.
