A 57-year-old man riding a bicycle died today after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver in south Omaha.
Police identified the dead man as Jose Sandoval of Omaha.
Witnesses said Sandoval left the Super Laundry laundromat near 37th and Q Streets about 9:45 a.m. on his bike.
He was crossing Q Street just east of 37th Street when he was struck by a westbound Dodge Dakota pickup truck, police said.
The driver sped away from the scene, swerving and speeding through traffic before striking another automobile, witnesses said.
Police later arrested the driver at his Omaha home. He was identified as Tomas De La Cruz-Prado, 19.
He was booked on suspicion of felony motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, driving under the influence and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
Sandoval was taken to Creighton University Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Moises Jutierrez, who said he called 911 and tended to Sandoval after he was struck, said the man had a wound on the back of his head and was bleeding from his nose, mouth and ears.
“He was moving and conscious but wasn't talking,” Jutierrez said.
Police said Sandoval was not wearing a helmet.

If you want some easy riding that includes some upper body strength training and lots of comradery, consider spending a few hours monkeying around with the Guerrilla Trail Crew? In addition to working out your arms and back slinging wet, heavy snow with a shovel, you'll be working out your heart by giving a little something to the community.
Maybe you don't ride trails, but a lot of people do; for fitness, recreation, and transportation. This sort of volunteer action also helps send a message to the community and to local officials that people care about access to the trails all year long.
