Driver Flees to Bar After Hitting, Killing Cyclist in Dallas

A man was arrested after he hit and killed a woman riding a bicycle late Saturday night.

Police at 12:05 a.m., the 47-year-old victim was riding a bicycle along the south shoulder of 1100 S. Riverfront Boulevard traveling westbound when the wreck occurred.

The driver, 22-year-old Jacob Albiar, was driving at a high speed and failed to properly navigate a curve on the roadway. Albiar drove into the south shoulder and struck the victim then collided with a planter box in front of an abandoned business.

Albiar proceeded to then flee the scene on foot to a nearby bar where officers apprehended him.

On Sunday night, the moon, Earth and sun lined up to create an eclipse, which was visible throughout North and South America, where skies were clear. It was also the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter. (This video does not have audio)
