Hit-and-run driver turns himself in
The man responsible for the death of a Cedar Rapids bicyclist in a fatal accident last July turned himself in to authorities this week.
An arrest warrant was issued for the driver behind the hit-and-run after police could not locate him at several addresses. Cedar Rapids police say that the man turned himself in after his friend saw a news report about the warrant and told him about it.
He has been charged with failure to yield and having no insurance in his involvement in the July 29 accident. The crash occurred on C Street SW and left the woman cyclist with serious head injuries, from which she died four days later in hospital care.
