The cyclist, identified as retired police chief Andreas Probst, 64, died as a result of his injuries.

The driver, a 17-year-old whose name was not released, was arrested and taken to a Juvenile Detention Center.

Daily Mail reports:

Andreas Probst, 64, was fatally struck on August 14 while cycling in northwest Las Vegas, where he had retired after stepping down as the police chief of Bell, California, in 2009.

The 17-year-old driver, whose name was not released by police due to his age, was arrested soon after the crash and taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.

Late last month, police said charges against the driver would be upgraded to include an open murder count, after investigators discovered video indicating the driver intentionally struck Probst, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

On Saturday, video circulated widely on social media and drew outraged reactions, showing the driver ask ‘ready?’ and the passenger, who was filming, laughing as he replies ‘yeah, hit his a**.’

The Post Millennial added:

Nevada’s Clark County coroner’s office stated the bicyclist Andreas Probst, 64, died at University Medical Center.

The Metropolitan Police Department has reported that a minor driving a 2016 Hyundai Elantra was speeding excessively, struck the back of a bike, and fled the scene.

The Probst couple was set to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary next month, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Being around him, it was like being next to a ray of sunshine,” said Andreas’ daughter, Taylor Probst. “He was always laughing, always smiling, offering you support, life advice, career advice.”


Andreas Probst has since been honored with a white ghost bike that was put up to represent his love for cycling.
