LAS VEGAS POLICE SAY MAN DIED AFTER HANGING OUT OF VAN AND STRIKING, KILLING BICYCLIST

The bicyclist was identified as Michelle Weissman, 56, according to the station.

“It’s an absolute senseless act,” Homicide Squad Lt. Raymond Spencer said Sunday.”There’s no reason behind this that I can tell you why it occurred, other than complete stupidity.”

Cruz told police he was driving about 50-60 mph when Gio pushed the woman on the bike, Fox 5 reported.

“Gio was always doing stupid stuff but Rodrigo stated he wasn’t intentionally driving in a manner to allow Gio to make contact with any pedestrians or the bicyclist,” the police report says, according to the station.

The report says Cruz said he drove home after Gio fell out and never went to check on him “because he was scared since he was on parole and didn’t think Gio was hurt,”

Police said Cruz was charged with murder, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and a parole violation.
