At least 5 dead after truck hits bicyclists in Michigan
Updated 12 mins ago

At least five people were killed after the driver of a pickup truck plowed into a group of bicyclists along a street in western Michigan, a fire official confirmed.

Cooper Township Fire Chief Terry Emig tells WZZM-TV Tuesday night at least five of the people struck have died.

The group was hit earlier in the evening near a park in the Kalamazoo area, south of Grand Rapids.

Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas tells local media at least eight people were hit, and some of those were children. He says the driver struck the bicyclists and fled on foot but was later arrested.

The Associated Press left messages seeking comment from Matyas and Emig.

No further details were immediately available. A news conference was scheduled for late Tuesday night.

I was going to post something on this...haven't seen a suspect pic yet.From early unreliable reports,witnesses said a pickup truck was seen weaving on lawns before the incident occurred.My first guess,from seeing witnesses talking on WWMT-Kalamazoo,was that this is a mostly white area.Can't be sure.Will keep you updated immediately if something new transpires.

The press conference is ongoing at this moment.The suspect will not be identified,according to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor,Jeff Getting,until Thursday when charges will or will not be filed.Information is he is a 50 year old male(no race given).Calls to police were coming in 30 minutes before the incident because of erratic driving.It looks as though the truck hit the bicyclists from behind.The truck was disabled at the time of the incident.All injured/killed were adults.5 dead--4 seriously injured.Details will not be given until charges are filed--probably on Thursday.

This is a little off-topic, but not too much.

Austin, Texas has had a problem with people throwing rocks at cars along Highway 35 for months, maybe years. It's a pretty evil thing to do. Sometimes motorists have been hurt in these incidents, which seem to happen very late at night from what I've read. I believe there have been over eighty incidents, if I'm not mistaken.

IH35 runs through the center of Austin, north to south. Austin has a pretty big homeless population, and many services for them are offered downtown, directly on the west side of IH35. East Austin lies to the left, obviously. It's where many of Austin's blacks and Hispanics live, although parts of it are becoming gentrified.

For some time, the police have been trying to catch one of these guys. Many of us have speculated on what kind of persons are doing the rock-throwing. Well, one of the rock-throwers finally got caught, and my local Internet provider published his mug shot. The perp was an angry-looking black guy in his forties, with no trace of regret of remorse on his face.

Police believe that this guy isn't the only rock-thrower. I think they're probably right.
