VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. A man has been arrested after leaving the scene of a crash in the 2400 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard that left a bicyclist dead Tuesday night.
Around 9:48 p.m., Virginia Beach Police say 43-year-old Terrence S. Ashby was driving his 2013 Mercedes 4D sedan eastbound in the number two straight lane when he hit a Trek bicycle ridden by the victim, who has been identified as 33-year-old Christopher E. Warren.
Warren's next of kin have been notified.
Police say Ashby's vehicle hit Warren on the right side. Warren died from his injuries at the scene.
After the crash, Ashby reportedly fled the area in an eastbound direction. His vehicle was later found parked in an auto body shop parking lot and had significant damage to the driver's side door area, a shattered windshield, scuff marks on the hood, a broken left headlight and a missing a driver's side mirror.
Authorities obtained warrants were obtained for Ashby on Wednesday, and he was quickly found, arrested and taken to the Virginia Beach Jail.
Ashby was charged with felony hit-and-run and operating a vehicle without a valid driver's license. He was taken in front of a magistrate, where he is currently held on a no bond.
Officials say more charges may be pending in this case.
