At least five cyclists have been killed, and a further four are injured, following a hit-and-run incident, in the US state of Michigan.
Five cyclists were killed and another four hurt in a hit-and-run incident in the US state of Michigan, police say.
The cyclists were struck by a pickup truck that was seen being driven erratically only minutes earlier, police in Kalamazoo said.
The driver of the truck, a 50-year-old man from Michigan, fled the scene and was arrested nearby soon afterwards.
A hospital spokesman said one of the injured cyclists was in a serious condition.
Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeffrey Getting told a news conference there had been a number of alerts about the blue Chevrolet’s erratic driving, but that a police chase was not under way when it crashed.
